This excellent article was part of the Globe Careers’ Leadership Lab series and is well worth reading. In it Osing writes about how it is imperfection that explains most success. He talks about how school leaves us with the impression that there is only one right answer to a problem rather than real-world results which are often messy and inelegant.
Osing’s second point is about losing being a better teacher than success. And isn’t that what we find here in our Toastmaster journey. While success can be sweet, it those nights when the speech doesn’t go as well as you’d like that motivates us to improve our skills and try again?
An excellent article for all of us to read and to remember it’s not the destination but the journey that counts in our educational programs.
