How many board members does it take to change a light bulb?

Your purpose as a board is to declare: “Let there be light” – then make sure you have the right people in place to make it happen.

Procedures to Prevent Problems #11: GOAL SETTING
July 5, 2017

The first step in setting goals is writing them.

After you write them DON’T file them.  Allow those goals to motivate you by keeping them posted at your desk.  Their visibility will be a constant reminder of what you need to do.
