There are a lot of tasks you have to complete to win the DTM award. Completing them all requires patience, effort, and determination. Think of it like completing a marathon - whether you finish it in 3 hours or 9 hours, it is still a big achievement. Similarly, there are people who finish their DTM in 12 years, and there are those who finish it in 2. The Toastmasters education program is self-paced, and we don't push artificial time limits.
