When is enough really enough?
I can make a thousand subscribers, have more books published, have million followers but do I really need that to grow my impact in my small part of the world with a viable group of community members, clients, and supporters? Nah.
Every business is personal and every organizational leader has their personal dreams, fears, and gaols. What is important is to tap into the core value of each organization, not what is popularly being done in the sector.
Some non-profits should not do social media just because everyone does it nowadays, or implement a hybrid work model if that wouldn't fly with the current delivery model and the type of clientele that they have. Some organizations should fold up for good and some should merge and be acquired by other stronger and more robust organizations instead of letting themselves perish in the marketplace. Some organizations must retain their mission in the face of the temptation to grow too big too fast. Some will have to recalibrate what they're doing to make it to the next year.
Humans are never content. Remember the Israelites in the wilderness, complaining about the manna they ate everyday versus starvation, cruelty, near-death, and oppression in their former lives.
As a strategist, a lot of organizations come to me for growth, expansion, sustainability, and resilience. But before getting deeply involved, we need to define the terms first. Their own definition versus the predominant moves in their sector. I wouldn't take a project that is sure to fail. Failure to have a clear definition of these is the worst failure of all, especially for those who are just trying to help the process move along.
What is enough? What sustains and not break you? What keeps it together in balance and rhythm? Becoming better is enough.
