Adieu Toastmasters

I quit Toast­mas­ters today.

I belonged to my club for three years, two of those years as a Sergeant at Arms in the exec­u­tive.

Toast­mas­ters is one of the finest vol­un­teer orga­ni­za­tions. I expe­ri­enced it first hand. I made friends, learned few skills, prac­ticed pub­lic speak­ing, saw peo­ple grow as speak­ers, orga­nized logis­tics and decid­ed how to spend our lim­it­ed bud­get for lunch after every meet­ing. So it isn’t an easy deci­sion to not do it any­more.

I am by no means a great pub­lic speak­er but while I was here, I got a tad bet­ter.

How­ev­er David Allen once said: you can do any­thing, but not every­thing. So I decid­ed to take a break from this love­ly jour­ney for awhile to give undi­vid­ed atten­tion to few of my biggest pri­or­i­ties.

Not sur­pris­ing­ly, I feel a bit sen­ti­men­tal.
