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.
