We are busier than ever before.
We are working harder than ever before.
We feel more harried than ever before.
We have more tasks on our to-do list than ever before.
We feel more pressure than ever before.
But, are we getting better?
Better at communicating. Better technically. Better at engaging donors. Better at inviting the next gift. Better at listening. Better at serving. Better at leading. Better as a work colleague. Better as a Dad, Mom, Spouse, Partner, Sibling, Friend. Better as a human.
If we can’t convince ourselves that we are getting better in a way that matters, perhaps all the busyness and stress-filled efforts are nothing more than distractions.
