Many of you are involved in leading a non-profit or serving on a non-profit board.
Peter Drucker found:
Non-profit boards spend 5 percent of their time planning and 61 percent problem solving. While for-profits spend 31 percent of their time planning and only 11 percent problem solving.
There’s a challenge in this for those involved in non-profits.
If we were to spend more time in strategic planning, we would waste less time problem solving.
Healthy organizations have clearly defined direction, which is clearly and consistently communicated to the team.
So, take some time this weekend, get out the yellow pad and begin making plans for the future.
Remember God’s word: “I know the plans for you, says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.”
