I spent this past weekend at a Toastmasters Conference in Ruidoso, New Mexico. The Conference was put on by District 23 Members. Everyone did an excellent job executing their portion to ensure that the event went smoothly and everyone had a nice time. There were speech contests, meals, socializing and lots of great educational breakout sessions.
The intent of those who organize conferences, workshops and seminars is to excite, inspire and motivate those in attendance. I often come away with all sorts of ideas, to do lists and new dreams. But then what? How long can that last? If you don’t turn those ideas, to do lists and dreams into concrete goals, the post event glow will fade quickly.
Here are some tips to converting the post event excitement into something that will propel you forward.
You will be hearing what I learned at this last conference in the coming weeks. I came away inspired to make some changes in my messaging and focus. I look forward to your feedback.
When was the last time you were inspired by a workshop or conference? What did you learn that you meant to put into practice, but let it go stale before you got there? How will you reignite your excitement? I hope you will share your thoughts with us on social media.
