I’m a Quitter

Don’t worry, I’m not quitting 15minutesofchange.com.

In fact, I plan to post more in the coming months.

One of my themes for 2016 was to become a better public speaker.

I listed this as one of my areas of focus for 2016 because of my talk at DisruptHR.  You can get the highlights on my LinkedIn page or see the full talk on gregsroche.com.

I have always been comfortable speaking in front of people, but I have never deliberately practiced public speaking.

To deliberately practice, I joined a Toastmasters group.

A few weeks ago, I gave my first speech.  It was titled, “The Quitter.”

The original text was published over at Medium.

I hope you’ll take a look and enjoy it.

 

Call Me A Quitter, Please!

At least, that’s what they called me. “They” were my teammates. And I had just quit the high school basketball team. Growing up in a small town, you either played sports or you didn’t. I had always played sports. In addition to basketball, I played on the tennis team.
