Accepted the application for the twentieth new member of our Timber Talkers Toastmasters club this year. I hope I can help support her as she takes those initial steps toward developing more confidence. It has been my privilege to serve as VP of Membership for the club.
One of the challenges I’ve had is finding the right language to communicate this blog’s goals. Those are:
- Record what I’ve done to meet my personal, daily challenge
- Build a list of ways to volunteer your time.
- Change my habits so that giving becomes a part of my subconscious
- Inspire others.
The final bullet point is the hardest.
The very nature of talking about unselfish acts makes you look, well, selfish. And that is definitely not very inspirational.
Therefore, starting today, I’m going to change the way I write the italicized introduction. Instead of focusing on what I’ve done, I’m going to try to focus on what someone else received.
It’s a small, but important change. And I hope this change of focus better inspires you, the reader. Thanks for the support.
