Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 179 – Insignificant Or Significant

I’m not sure how to include signing up for an ongoing volunteer activity. So I’ll just mention it today. I volunteered to be Area Governor for Toastmasters District 7, Area 95 this term (July ’11 – June ’12). I guess that is significant.

First man on the moon

Have you done something today that was significant?

It is a whole lot easier to focus on doing the insignificant while claiming it is significant.

We balance our checkbooks to the penny every month. (Must do it!) We review every credit card statement. (Could be an error!) We stress over a perfectly clean house. (What if a neighbor saw my messy bedroom!) We work on projects that have little meaning. (My car must be waxed!)

Don’t get me wrong. Details are important. Hobbies and rest are important. But are they significant?

When will we make time to do something significant?

    I did something significant! I made a pitch to the partners in our company to move all of our curriculum to a format that will allow us to deliver it to any and all digital devices. I used my Toastmasters skills, of course. Congratulations on becoming our new Area Governor.

      Excellent and thanks! Glad to hear you were able to apply all those skills.

      Actually, I’ll be the governor for 95, not 91. But what’s 4 digits among friends. 🙂
