As I was preparing for my trip of a lifetime in South America, an exciting thing happened.
I was invited to give a speech to 1000 Mexican students.
In my head, I’m thinking: Ok, I have zero time to prepare it before I leave but hey, it sounds exciting. I ask: When is it?
The answer: This friday. In 4 days.
I’m struck by anxiety for the tight schedule, but I push it aside and accept.
Fast forward a few days.
