The idea of Wisdom Wednesdays is for ALDE members to learn with and from each other. We are all experts in certain areas – be it donor analytics, grant writing, social media, phonathons or any of the myriad other topics that relate to development.
Can you think of anything where you’re an expert, or where you might have a bit more wisdom than the average development professional? Then ALDE’s members would love to hear about it! Please send your idea(s), or even completed blog posts if you’re that eager, to Jon at firstname.lastname@example.org. Jon can then discuss your ideas with you and help formulate a direction, or can simply take what you’ve written and schedule it for the next open Wednesday. Please make your piece 200-500 words, and also send a color photo of yourself. We look forward to hearing your wisdom!
Here’s some wisdom I first heard when I was about to enter high school. Yeah, the song was a big pop culture fad, but this wisdom might inspire you to come up with some of your own. For example, “Remember compliments you receive. Forget the insults.”
