I`ve actually been a member of SuN for a while but have just been skalking in the background.
My business, Able Writer is devoted to helping New Hampshire non-profits achieve their missions through the use of new web technologies such as blogs, wikis, social networing sites, etc.
As I start a new year, I find myself feeling let down by my lack of accomplishment despite high interest and an open field. I was wondering if there were any groups here that came together to support one another to set attainable goals and work toward them.
Thanks for your help.
:-) I think you`ll find lots of people who would fit into a support group for those who feel they`re not accomplishing much, or haven`t reached goals they`ve hoped to reach.
I`ve been pondering the whole concept, going through similar anxieties and annoyances. What I think we have to examine is the idea of perceived value. Suppose you`re an accomplished chef, and through circumstances find yourself in a town where almost everyone has grown up eating fast food.
If you open up a restaurant, only to discover that few people come back as repeat diners, not many people care about the food, and you don`t seem to be making it, would you say it`s your own problem?
What if the market around you doesn`t perceive a value in whatever it is you`re doing? Is there such a thing as "objective" value, and if so, what if a decreasing number of people perceive it? At what point do you hold to integrity versus adjusting (compromising) toward a low-quality product?
For example, suppose you see you`re not doing well with the restaurant, and you discover it`s because people in the town simply don`t care for or understand the type of food you`re cooking. Furthermore, suppose you`re mostly cooking regular food, but it`s still better than fast-food burgers and hot dogs. What then?
Do you hold the restaurant, but sell burgers and fries?
