Our thinking is what holds us back

A good friend shared this Ted Talk by Dan Pollata with me.

It is from the perspective of a fund raiser but the message is true of our NFP thinking in general.

Charity, doing it on a shoe string etc shouldn’t be seen as badges of honour because they hold us back from making significant changes to the things that matter.

As my friend said “I think we do need to explode certain outdated and unhelpful paradigms that hold the NFP sector back“.

So cliché but if we want to change the world, we have to first change ourselves.
