Last night, I went to a free seminar about public speaking.

Because Rick’s “Power of Story” interview was so fresh in my mind, I kept on linking points that he had made, to points that the seminar-presenter made, and to the way I naturally speak to people—whether one or hundreds—when I’m doing a presentation. (Presentations are easy for me. Small-talk is hard!)

According to the seminar, most people remember only 5% of the facts you give them, but 100% of the overall impression you give them, and how you make them feel.

But because of my ADHD brain’s multi-tasking, I remembered a lot more than just 5%!
