If you’re like most nonprofit professionals, you are inundated with stuff to do.
Your “To Do” list grows longer everyday with no end in sight.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. The key to success is knowing which things to focus on at any given time.
If you want to Get Fully Funded, you need to learn how to spend your time on the things that matter and that will move you forward toward your fundraising goals. If you’re like many people, you’re probably doing lots of different things during the day like:
- Things you shouldn’t be doing in the first place (like serving on non-fundraising committees)
- Things that are easy to do that anyone in your office or a volunteer could do (like filing or stuffing envelopes)
- Things that could be delegated to someone else (like editing a newsletter or making changes to a website)
- Things that only you can do (like building relationships with donors)
I bet you can guess what I’m going to tell you to focus on!
You must spend your time on the things that only you can do and those things that move you closer to your fundraising goals.
This level of priority management may seem extreme, but it can be learned and implemented.
The better job you do at managing your time and your priorities, the more time you’ll have to spend on cultivating relationships with donors. This is, after all, what will move you toward raising all the money your nonprofit needs.
