I have been speaking for many years. I have also been a Toastmaster for over a decade. But Guy Kawasaki's post today is enlightening. His friend, Doug Lawrence, wrote fifteen absolute necessities for speaking. Number 4 is amazing. I can't wait to try it.

Doug says to bite your tongue if your mouth gets dry.

As I get older, I do tend to get dry mouth when speaking. I'm sure others get it from nervousness. I cannot wait to try this technique. Just sitting here typing I tried it and it does seem that my mouth got more moisture as I gently bit my tongue.

Thanks, Guy, for bringing Doug to us.
