    I can’t believe it but the year is approaching the end. A lot happens in a year – we grow, we stumble, we learn.

    Instead of a new year’s resolution post, I want to hear what you learned in 2013.

    Better Story Telling.
    By that I mean I would like to develop better skills to communicate and describe the work I do and my staff does in our program. A resolution for 2014 is to take the time on a regular basis to really capture the activities, outputs, and outcomes we have accomplished. As I look back over 2013, I can see all the good work we did — but it’s too bad I didn’t tell anyone about it!

    You can’t change somebody’s mind. You can only create opportunities for them to change it themselves.
