Last year, I got really excited about TEDxSanAntonio. I read every page of the web site. I googled the organizers. I circled the date on the calendar. I told Frank and Max I wanted to attend. Then I opened the application and suddenly my head was full of every possible gremlin shouting, "Who do you think you are?"
I didn't apply. The deadline slipped past.
On the day of the conference, I watched some of the presenters via the live feed from my studio. I may have cried a little at my lack of courage, for not even applying to attend. I promised myself this year would be different.
This is my ticket to the kickoff gathering for TEDxSanAntonio 2011. One way or another, I'm going to be there!
