So, a friend of mine asked…what is the purpose behind our blog? Is it simply for GCSS employees to read? Or are we trying to reach a wider audience?
Ideally, the latter is true. We would like others to know what we’re about, and promote awareness of the issues that we care about. If this blog is one way to do that, then let’s use it!
Unfortunately, when it comes to the Internet, many nonprofit organizations don’t use it to its full potential. Either that, or in the eyes of some, the ‘Net simply isn’t the best place for nonprofits to get their message to the world.
This New Year’s…let’s resolve to do our jobs better and make the best effort at helping our consumers and their families. Whether that means making home visits, meeting with families, handling the billing, working in the office, or doing promotions, all are important (as easy as it is to forget that sometimes).
I know each one of you probably has your own New Year’s resolution (if you do make them at all), but all I ask is that you be realistic about yours! Actually, I’m guilty of being unsuccessful at keeping a New Year’s resolution as well, so not to be a hypocrite – I resolve to do my job to the best of my ability. And I resolve to do better at managing my anger and frustration in front of others.
Though I don’t claim that I’ll be successful 100% of the time, I think making the effort, and showing the results, are what counts. (And if we all exercise a bit more, or go on a diet on top of that, more power to us…but it seems those are the resolutions that 99% of us don’t keep).
Anyway, see you all in January. Have a wonderful New Year’s Eve. And for goodness’ sake…give yourself a little break.
