Thoughts, experience, and divergent views on how to achieve at a very high level. While focused on grant-makers and nonprofits, the tools and approaches shared here are broadly applicable.
Check out my three points of approach:
1. Results are a way of thinking, feeling, and acting. They are not a component of plans or programs. They are the point of plans and programs – and indeed of organizations.
2. Outcomes are about what comes out, not what goes in. Most organizations on their websites talk about the number they serve. I am far more interested in how many improve their lives and conditions from services.
3. Energy is the scarcest and most important resource for high achievement. Unlike information, you can’t buy energy. You have to make it.
