I Was Busted with Crib Notes During Interview [Embarassing]
It was while standing in line for our first grade photos when, for reasons I have never known, the little girl in front of me whom will call Rhonda (because that's her name) windmilled her old-fashioned steel lunch pail up, over and around, slamming it smack down between my eyes. I was caught completely off guard—blind-sided right between the eyes.
When the bleeding stopped, the teachers cleaned me up as best they could and the photographer snapped my class photo. I can still feel the pain when I see that photo of this little blond haired boy in a blue button up, with a red bleeding bump on his forehead.
But all these years later it's not the pain of the lunch pail but that I still feel but the embarrassment. Sure, from an adult view I can argue that logically there's nothing to be embarrassed about but at the tender age of six… well, you know how far that logic would get you.
I share that story to help you recall your own experiences with embarrassing life moments. We all have had them and we will continue to—on some level.
My hope is that by accessing your own embarrassing memories you'll go a little easier on the most recent embarrassing moment I experienced this weekend.
While being interviewed this weekend on how the "Performance Lifestyle" can put a man on top of his game—enjoying more time, energy and freedom—I was busted!
Yep, caught red-handed using my crib-notes. (see photo of my palm)
Yes, it's embarrassing but I've got to ask, is it really cheating if the ideas were all mine in the first place?
In the interest of Full disclosure, the most embarrassing aspect of it all is that I was doing a radio interview!
Ouch! That one is gonna sting for awhile…
