Azfan is a member of our McGill Toastmasters club. I have seen his journey from beginner to now that he has become a good speaker and a good leader. He shares his view of optimism, and personal development at work and his personal life.
Work: Azfan is a business consultant with the company Salesforce. He teaches businesses to use technology in the most efficient way.
Azfan sees his work a bit different than many people. He's not there merely to collect a paycheck, he sees his work as getting paid to learn, he's getting paid to go to school. This serves him well because companies are looking for people who want to learn, people who want to improve themselves, people who what to move forward.
If a person is doing a boring, mind-numbing job, Azfan sees it as an opportunity to think about other things, he argues that we are more creative when we are bored.
How to stay motivated: Reading and self-reflection. Reading what successful people have done in the past and how they have overcome problems.
Azfan writes to communicate his ideas and techniques about how to be more efficient in his blog Increase My Efficiency. He teaches people how to take advantage of all the opportunities presented to them as employees.
