Don't block engagement

 My posts are few and very far between. I apologize for the lack of attention I have been able to put into this site and hope to one day return to more optimism. 

It's tough. Engagement is harder these days. It could be because I'm trying to engage in my work over my optimistic pursuits. It could be because I don't understand the district I reside in where committee chairs are not listed on the website. What? How can we engage with them and the programs offered by Optimist International and the PNW District?

I truly believe it is the latter. When individuals are elected into positions where they have little or no experience, they return their service with wildly out-of-tune procedures indicative of their lack of knowledge. 

If you want people to engage with you, you must offer them the opportunity for engagement first. Period. Nothing more to be said.

Opt for optimism

 I am curating a group on Facebook made up primarily of Optimist Club members from various clubs in the West Coast Region - Optimist International. To begin the week, I publish a little nugget of inspired loyalty to the organization that I call Membership Monday. 

Brand awareness is as important to internal audiences as it is to external audiences. After all, the external audience has not become loyal yet. It takes continued dedication by members to inspire and invite others to join the cause. It is then a conscious decision one makes to choose optimism. 

Choose optimism and join an Optimist Club today. Send me a note and I will help you find a club near you.
