When I prep, I prep like Lincoln.  I’m like that when I prepare a talk.  I outline.  I make notecards.  I rehearse it at least three times. But other times, I’m totally flying by the seat of my pants.

More often than not, the Lincoln approach comes hand-in-hand with doing something that scares me.  Speaking in public is one of those things.  I just have to hope that God helps me sort out the tasks that deserve this amazing attention to detail vs those that do not.
