An over-packed mini-van was stopped by a New Hampshire State Trooper last week and cited for negligent driving. The driver had strapped a bicycle, shopping cart, a rake and a television, among other items, to the top of his roof. While the vehicle was being towed in, items fell off onto the highway, causing State Police to issue a friendly reminder to motorists that over-packing your roof rack can be dangerous.
On the exact same day that this occurred, I was coaching new presenters through their first practice presentations. They were asked to create a 15-16 minute presentation on a topic of their choice. Of the nine presenters, about half managed to choose just the right amount of content for the time frame. The others over-packed, rushed through their final points and skipped the opportunity for a strong closing.
