Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.
Ecclesiastes 11:4 (New Living Translation)
The Power of ‘Small, Easy Steps’
Link: The Life of a Non-profit: Growth & Growing Pains (Robin Morgan)
“In the life of a non-profit there are three general levels of growth, namely: Early, Middle, and Maturity . . . There are ways to tackle growing pains or, in some cases, avoid anticipated growth-related challenges altogether. While the Executive Director is the face of the organization, their real role in growing successfully is often misunderstood. Dealing effectively with growing pains, [Morgan has] observed, really depends more on an organization’s Board members than it’s Executive Director”.
- Some people let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Too often perfectionism is, truth be told, a mask for one’s underlying procrastination. Have in your mind how you’d like the Journey to end and start it. Do it! You won’t reap a harvest for a seed you never planted!
