The Waiting Game Starts

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

After the planning, selling and completion of all ingredients needed to make an event successful, you are pushed in the waiting  corner for the  actual day of the event ( which starts not on the first day of the event but the ingress or move-in day).

This is one aspect of the event that is very difficult. Your emotions are bottled-up. Anxiety and excitement fights inside of you and your team. Doubts swirl around your head. Did I accomplish all the necessary pre-event needs to make this event a BIG S! Is there anything I have overlooked that could spell disaster during the actual event? Are my team equipped? Is there anything I could do to make this event better before the actual day of the event?

Yes! The waiting game hangs like the sword of Damocles. Trepidations are a natural occurrence. A caffeine fix could not even do anything to allay the emotions that you have inside. It is like you are waiting for the gate of adrenaline rush to open.

The waiting game is one of the crossroads of the event. It is where you keep in silence while your mind shouts and your heart pumps in a rhythm that you cannot define.

Tic...tac ...tic...tac

The clock ticks and your awareness are heightened. Funny but true, I sometimes experience the hairs of my body go up, akin to watching a horror movie - excitement, anxiety, paranoia, and hubris, a mix of everything.
This is the waiting game – all you can do, which I and Exlinkers do, is pray that everything will be alright.

If you are wondering what I am waiting to happen - blimey! It is Look and Feel Great Expo. If you have forgotten, it is this April 15-16, 2011 at Market, Market, and Taguig City.
