Raging Determination and Drive
The successful fundraiser believes that patience is not necessarily a virtue. They pull up the roots to see if the flowers are still growing. They are seldom satisfied with progress that isn’t on a fast track.
They are “itchy” by nature. The successful ones do not suffer easily standing still or treading water. It’s the race they savor. And most of all, winning the race.
Not everyone might agree. But patience is not an ideal or a worthy attribute. The great fundraisers have a raging determination and drive. There is an undisciplined fervor for the fray and fire.
