First, Second or Third person?

What tense do you use? I’ve ended up with a hodgepodge. My course demonstrates one approach to achieving a Video Memory. I tend to use first person to share the approach I use and recommend, but that it isn’t the only option. The risk I fear is coming across as egotistical. Using second person makes it less self-centered perhaps but, without disclaiming verbiage, removes the sense of other legitimate solutions. I find a third person approach quite dry.
Is this anything I need to worry about as I go back to render my final drafts?

Re: First, Second or Third person?

Coming across authentically with a genuine love and knowledge for your subject  would be number one for me @BrianCase923 , after that keeps the tenses consistent is probably a good idea, although it is conversation dependant.
