LBN's Anonymous Community Insider
"Hope is no strategy for success"
Within the voluntary, charity, and community sector, we are significantly affected by decisions made at a 'higher level'; whether that is Central Government decisions on immigration support services, Local Government decisions on local community facilities and services, or the decisions of Trustees and Board members.
We will all know of someone who has arranged activities and then 'hope that people will turn up'; many of us will have done that in the past. I can assure you, hope isn't a marketing method I would rely on, and it certainly wouldn't be what I pinned my organisation's business survival on.
In the challenging financial climate we operate in, we have to be smarter and savvier than ever. We have to embrace new methods of surviving financially, new methods of working with our communities, and new methods of raising our profile, but Hope isn't one of them.
So next time you find yourself saying that you 'hope this is successful' just remember - Hope is no strategy for success.
