Yes And

On thursday my Toastmasters group had an impromtu speaking night. The goal of the meeting was to work on impromtu speaking. Since most of the talking you do in your life is impromtu, having practice and being good at it is very important. Since the group enjoys my ability to think on my feet, I was asked to be co-Toastmaster with one of the group’s Distiguised Toastmasters.

At the beginning of the meeting I gave suggestions to help the group with their ability to give impromtu speeches. The best suggestion I gave was to use the improv principle of “Yes, and.”

The idea of “yes and,” is when your partner on stage says anything you take what they say as a fact on the stage and then add to it. You can use this idea in your daily life. Instead of using that voice in your head to tell you why the idea will not work. How about telling yourself “yes and” and then keep on going. Living a life of “yes and” you will be able to do the things you used to be afraid of. Not only that, when you make a mistake, you will be able to “yes and” the mistake. You will correct the mistake rather than dwelling on the mistake.

How can you “yes and” your life in the next week?
