Running an on-purpose organization, as in life, is all about a marathon, not a sprint.
There will be greater, better, more beautiful, and hugely successful than your organization, accept it.
But the biggest fallacy to succumb is to compete against the top 10% of the world, which is not a healthy crusade to take on.
If it's survival of the fittest, then take your best competition as an inspiration to springboard you away from the grinding struggle and take the most logical next step. If it's building your value system as the first ground breaking practice, do it with care and attention it deserves. If it's about building an impact strategy you can be proud of, trust your process and the intentions behind it. If you're trying to make good with people from overseas using your talents and bunch of individual supporters, know that you're not alone in that journey. Instead of envying your competition, learn from their effectiveness.
Don't take the biggest problem ever and solve it. Take the nearest problem, and slay it with passion. That's how to overcome overwhelm from the unrealistic self-imposed burden.
We don't need heroes and divas. We believe in you and me, ordinary mortals with extraordinary generosity.
