You wake up in the morning dreading tackling your ever-expanding To Do list.
At the end of the week, you feel like you worked so hard and you are so tired – but you didn’t really accomplish anything.
Your nonprofit is not hitting it’s quarterly targets, despite you feeling stretched so thin and pulled in 100 different directions.
There are a ton of reasons why nonprofit practitioners so often feel this way (some that are out of our control):
You wear too many hats.
The expectations placed on you are unreasonable – you often feel set up to fail.
You may not be in the right position at your organization, squandering your strengths and interests.
The “scarcity mindset” is destroying nonprofits and siphoning talent and creativity away from the sector.
But there are a few things that we can do to take our time and the power over our day back.
