Fundraising professionals perform better with colleagues and donors when they start from a place of self-care and compassion.
The first part of January should be reserved for thanking donors as fast and as well as possible. But after that? Time to evaluate! Here’s how.
Richard and I think it’s a good idea to step back every once in a while and reflect on where you are. In other words, how are you feeling about your current position? How does it fit your skill set? Is what you’re doing today helping you move toward your future goals? Do you feel joy in what you do?
This year can be the year of creating balance for you and me, but it can only be achieved with taking time out to pause and reflect. This will help you to be more focused, actually help you get more accomplished, and make yourself a happier person.
