It’s become such a romantic idea to work for a good cause. So romantic, many Americans would probably rather work for a cause than for the Man.
It’s certainly noble.
It’s definitely rewarding.
But don’t be fooled. It is also hard work. And I don’t just mean long hours.
I’m convinced there is an evil in the world that doesn’t want to see good to come of anything – including whatever good things you set out to do.
Whether it’s more red tape than is necessary to get something done to logistical nightmares to communication misunderstandings, it’s good to be prepared for whatever comes your way.
As the saying goes, forewarned is forearmed. Be alert and wary that the good work you do will meet resistance.
That’s when you pull up your big-girl/boy panties, stand up tall and fight your way through. I’m confident you will find reward on the other side. Fatigue too, but it will be the best fatigue you’ve ever felt.
