Don't Expect Perfection | Tip of the Morning to You

Jul 30, 2020

Welcome to another installment of “Tip of the Morning to You!” If you’re on Step 1 (I Can Do This!) of a Fundraisers Learning and Action Journey, you’re enthusiastic and have some experience working or volunteering in the sector. While you bring a lot of skills to the job, there are a lot of things you’re not familiar with or aware of: about the job, about the sector and about the profession. But you’re keen to learn.

Tip #4:  DON’T EXPECT PERFECTION OF YOURSELF – you’re learning new skills. And the time we are living in is requiring us to be bold. Don’t let an attempt at perfection paralyze or prevent you from taking action. Well-planned but slightly flawed action is better than inaction.
