My Son and Daughter are having swimming lessons this week. They have not spent a lot of time in the water over the past years and as a result it has showed up in my Son developing a fear of putting his face in the water. The instructor told me that all they really need is more time in the pool.
Later, I attended a Toastmaster's Meeting and was disappointed when I ummed and ahhed my way through the improv speech. Fortunately, I was able to make them laugh which accounted for almost 20 seconds of my talk.
I asked my mentor, Paul, afterwards what he thought of my Table Topic and he said I did fine but not to worry as the ability to think of something quickly to talk about only takes a lot of practise.
