keys to success

Board. Budgets. Email. Fund development. Staff. Program problems. Program evaluation. Social media. Millions of things distract a nonprofit leader’s attention. Only one thing draws it back in: intentional focus.

Mr. Chet Dekko, our founder, carried with him a set of handwritten note cards held together with a rubber band. One of them stated: “Concentration of effort is the key to human accomplishment.”

Building on Mr. Dekko’s belief, we’ve observed this profound point from some of the most effective leaders across our grantmaking areas: The things their organizations CHOOSE NOT TO do have as much to do with their success as the things they choose TO DO!

Hmmmmm.
