Make a Plan, then Work Your Plan
It’s easy to get caught up with the day-to-day events that we can easily get into a rut. Sometimes we need to put the brakes on and take little time to evaluate our progress. It seems like such a simple step, yet too many times nonprofits let the overwhelming amount of work consume the day and allow them to get away from their plan.
At the beginning of this new year make goals and plans that are realistic to achieve, and then commit to evaluating your progress a regular basis. If you find you aren’t reaching these goals, then reevaluate to make sure your expectations are realistic and either adjust the goal or adjust your priorities to make sure you will hit the mark.
Make a plan, work your plan and you will see achievement towards the main objective. This will allow you to be more effective in whatever capacity you hold within the organization. Always remember that it’s the sum of the parts that make the whole.
