My theory about "winging it"
JANUARY 26, 2016
Check this out: People who "wing it" are far more afraid of failure and rejection than those who prepare, although it might seem to be the opposite. See, if you wing it and succeed - your audience applauds, your jokes land, you come across as articulate and compelling, and people want to connect with you afterward - then you can be relieved and pleasantly surprised. You can even tell yourself "I'm good at winging it."
