The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.

The second meeting of this year was filled with continuous inspirations followed by the successful new beginning. With warm welcome to our quest visitor, Joyce Chow, we also wanted to thank Joyce for hosting “Word of the day” session with this inspiring word – curious.

Word of the day – Curious

Life is too short to squander precious time on boredom. The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity. We shared things we were curious about, our behaviors to it and how we used the power of curiosity to grow stronger. Tonight was definitely a night that no one could sense boredom, not even a second.

The wonderful meeting continued with several outstanding speeches led by Lasse, Robert, Aruna and Johan. Lasse taught us that a true leader is whom makes every individual the most important of all. Robert shared his personal experience of why he joined Toastmasters twice. Aruna delivered a thought about making dreams a reality. Here we would like to especially elaborate Johan’s knowledgeable topic of “comfort zone”. How we could use this comfort zone circle to set our goals according to our current abilities and potentials.

Table topic – Comfort zone

Let’s start with “automatic” which means things we do without even thinking about it. Gradually the circle extends to “everyday activities”, “comfort zone” and “other comfort zone”. The further it spreads out, the more challenging it will become for us to achieve. By checking on comfort zone circle, we could examine ourselves and set our goals in a different way.

Tonight was another educational and inspiring night that everyone learned from each other’s vision and knowledge. Thanks toastmaster of the night, Jeanette, and all the members. We all walked out of the meeting room with plenty of enrichment, confidence and motivations.

Thanks for a great meeting. To be the toastmaster for the evening is “easy” when supported by all of you nice members. The speeches were very interesting and inspiring, good subjects and content, and also excellent performance. Well done everyone. Special thanks to Robert and Johan who brought cakes for the coffee break. And Joyce, hope to see more of you now that you are back.”
Toastmaster of the night, Jeanette
