FROM THE DESK OF THE DISTRICT DIRECTOR

Dear Toastmasters of District 101,


In March 2010, I was in line, eagerly awaiting my bib for a triathlon. Doubt crept in, questioning my ability to conquer the impending challenge. Seeking solace, I confided in Jim, a fellow participant close to my age, both venturing into triathlon territory for the first time.

As our nerves manifested in conversation, Jim gestured toward Dean, a seasoned triathlete in his 60s who had conquered the same race six consecutive times. Dean, sensing our apprehension, generously shared his wisdom. "Don't view the triathlon as an overwhelming elephant; instead, break it down into manageable parts—the trunk, the legs, and the tail," he advised. Essentially, his counsel encouraged us to set smaller, achievable goals.


As we embark on a new year with renewed determination, let's heed Dean's timeless advice. As he suggested for the triathlon, let's dissect our goals or resolutions into bite-sized pieces. By doing so, we increase the likelihood of success, making each step forward a triumph in itself.


Here are the things that we can look at this month:


1: The Club Officer training schedule is up. Please join us to share your experience of how you did things effectively and learn from your peers. 

2: Renewals

3: Open House

4: Toastmasters Leadership Institute: We have the current world champion of Public Speaking, Jocelyn B. Tyson, Join us for the TLI 2024.


regards,

Abhijeet Joshi
