When everyone is on the same page

You can achieve anything!!

This is so true.  I attended an executive meeting for one of my Toastmasters clubs last night  The wine and ideas were flowing and overall it was reassuring that everyone was on the same page.

There were many things discussed regarding the internal growth of the members as well as reaching out to bring new members in.

A number of action committees were formed.  The biggest lesson I have learned in regards to committing to these projects is that there is only so much of you that can go around.  In the past, I would put my hand up to be a member of all the committees, but recently in the last year or so I have learned to say no.  Not because I don’t want to do it, but because if I do everything then I am 1) Not empowering others to learn and grow and 2) I would not be able to give my full attention to each project.  This is when things get missed and reflects badly on the project and the teams and myself.

I know that the plans we have in store over the next 6 to 12 months will cement our club membership and allow us to continue to be a strong and effective organisation.
