I heard a lot about this and I think this needs a blog article in the first place.
Managers, entrepreneurs, directors of organizations fall trap into this thinking.
They sell the idea that somebody might be making a donation. Some body, some where, some day!
This is utterly useless from a management point of view. Unless money is in the bag, don’t count it.
Don’t even mention it because it creates a false sense of hope. Hoping that things will be better.
If it doesn't come, then what? Reverse-engineer it, period.
It is not coming.
Hope is good but when it comes to running a business. Don’t count hoping and wishing as good strategies.
Create good strategies that will take you from where you are right now to the next 5 years-10-15.
You will thank yourself from acting on the basis of what can be done with the resources that you have.
Being pragmatic and realistic will win day.
Lots of organizations and starts-up hope and wish for a big donation, a successful JV partner, a huge funding, a media exposure, etc.
Well these things take time. Relationships and connections are the best investments.
Now, go and make good strategies. Between your vision and the strategies that you employ, the rest is implementation.
Give me a thumbs up if you agree:)
