You need to be on top of your game!

This means you should always be on the lookout for what is new, what is effective, what your "competition is doing." You do this not for the sake of imitating what they are doing and if they are doing it right. You need to be aware so that you can strategize accordingly.

The PinoyFundraiser should be always learning, observing, and taking down notes. You should always on the internet. Look at your "competitors'" website. Buy their products. Experience their service. Does it change your perception? Then they are doing something right.

You should be alert for things that can improve your creativity, your knowledge on development and fundraising. You also need to learn something new that is totally unrelated to your field. A lot of breakthroughs happen because you found that you can apply fundraising something you learned in agriculture for example. Who knows right?

There so many free resources on the internet, your neighborhood, your library or park. Learn to observe. Learn to take it in and stock it in your brain so that you can pull it out when you need it. It also exercises your brain so that you don't get Alzheimers. 8-)

The PF cannot rest easy and rest on his triumphs. You can be obsolete in quickly! See you on Monday!
