Banks Benitez of Unreasonable Institute on Embracing Awkwardness

This post was picked and written by out former Editor-in-Chief, Sandy Grason. She often feels anxiety about being awkward.


I have to be honest with you. I was feeling a lot of pressure about my very first “Editor’s Pick”. It felt like I needed to find something perfect in order to connect with you, our amazing Unreasonable community, more deeply. Daniel kept saying “Just pick something, it should take you 15 minutes.” (the truth is Daniel does a lot of things in 15 minutes that would take most people much, much longer.) So, I’ve been laboring over this decision of what would be the perfect first Editor’s Pick for a very long time.

And then we were having an Unreasonable Family dinner and someone suggested this video. Daniel agreed. Our very own, Banks Benitez talking about “Embracing Awkwardness” at Ignite Boulder is the perfect video to kick off our weekly Editor’s Pick.

I hope you enjoy it!

Awkwardness is when you show your true self but you don’t mean to.  Tweet This Quote
