Facing the loss

Why didn't I win?
Why didn’t I win?

I actually thought I was winning but realized just before the jurys announcement that I already lost. Welcome to my second TV-attempt.

Preperations
I was all set on doing a great TV-performance because it’s more fun that way. So I needed something to get me as much screen-time as possible. If there were any celebritys there I had to make sure they would stop by my marketplace. This was an example of missing the mark. Here the mark was to impress the jury, no one else was important.

What I should have done
On top of missing the mark my head was stuck up my ass until one week before recording date (it was recorded 6 months in advance). I wasn’t bothered by not knowing how the competition was organized. I think the TV-crew didn’t really know either.

Note to self– Make sure to get as much info about a competition to maximize success.

Anyhow, I could have done a much better job convincing the jury members just by preparing a little better.

More about this in the next post…

I'm going to make a fool of my self again!

Since my last appearance as an inventor on national TV (In Sweden) I recently got head hunted to another innovation contest.

TV shoot in a few months
I’ve got the summer vacation to put my act together. This time I’m not too worried about the result and can focus on being entertaining. More on this topic later.
