WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
Choose the right place to channel your efforts; The effects will be multiplied
TELL US ABOUT A TIME WHEN THIS PIECE OF ADVICE CAME IN USEFUL.
Back when I was setting up a Youth-At-Risk project and looking for partners/sponsors, I chose a few and went on to speak to them. Unfortunately, all the effort I put came to naught because they did not agree with the vision of the project and the execution plan. It was a huge blow to the project, and it did not get carried out. It was a painful lesson, and was one that I will remember, knowing now that choosing the right channels is important.
