The Optimist Creed is good at any time

experience optimismThree years ago (wow, has it been that long?), I served as the Vice President of the West Region, Optimist International.

One of the things that VPs get to do is visit Optimist Clubs and Districts and to encourage them to share their optimism with others.

October 31, 2015, found me in San Diego, California where I led a breakout session on creating videos and my key point was that with our smartphones, it is so easy to do!

Yes, we can buy editing software and be professional about it, but we can also be spontaneous and authentic, just like this group of Optimist Club members in the California South District.

Please join me in reciting the Optimist Creed as you enjoy the video.
