Focus on what IS working – be positive

Can you discipline yourself to focus on the “bright spots”? Here’s the idea: instead of asking yourself why giving is down, look at which donors gave more this year and find out why. Instead of agonizing over why your latest marketing campaign failed, look at the last one that worked and discover what made it a winner. Instead of asking people in your office why they aren’t hitting their numbers, ask who is succeeding and why. Spend more time on duplicating what works rather than dwelling on what is broken.
