Although we learn many important skills throughout life, in my mind the single most important skill is the ability to communicate. It is impossible to imagine any situation, other than being a complete recluse, in which communication is not an essential part of daily living. If you interact with family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, teachers, politicians, constituents, contractors, or anybody else, you use some form of communication. One of the many benefits of joining a Toastmasters club is to learn, and refine, communication skills (including the confidence to use the skills you learn).
