Observations From the Bottom of the Pool
Make it fun
My favorite swimming "tool" is my SwimP3 — a nifty little gadget that lets me listen to my favorite songs as I stare at that uninspiring pool bottom. Learn to laugh at work if you aren't already doing so. Celebrate small victories, and be your own best cheerleader. Remember that fundraising starts with "fun." No matter how serious your mission, having fun at your work is allowed.
Whether you're dog-paddling in your fundraising career, a gold-medal fundraiser or somewhere in between like this old dog, enjoy your work today. It truly does matter.
