Tangible Assets Versus Overhead in Nonprofits

By on January 7
Tangible Assets EclecticEvelyn.com

One of the most important things I tried to get funders to understand was that tangible assets did not make a nonprofit run.  Computers, paper, books, markers do not make a community center run.  It is wonderful to find funders who will cover the costs of these items but the real work is done by the people. People who have families to support. People who need to get paid. Not only people but things like overhead costs of rent and utilities on the buildings. Money for transportation and childcare.

When I read the Just Jot January prompt for today, the first thing that popped into my head was the robot on Lost in Space.  Lost in Space was one of my favorite shows as a child. So I went in search of a Youtube video or something to share in this post for those of you who have no idea what Lost in Space was. Here is a clip I found:

Time

By on January 2

I have noticed that the older I become the faster time moves. I remember when I was young it seemed like days lasted forever and I couldn’t wait to be a grownup. Well, being a grownup is not all that it is cracked up to be. I really miss those days of no bills and frivolous worries like do my socks match my outfit or if a certain person is going to sit next to me today, but I digress… Ah to be young again. I wish that I had savored that time more. Now it seems that no sooner do I wake up then it is time to go to bed again leaving me with a long list of things I wanted to do today undone.

Show Gratitude Daily

Show Gratitude Daily EclecticEvelyn.com

Want to find more joy? It’s simple, stop comparing yourself to others and start practicing gratitude. Once we become aware of all that we already have then we can find happiness. Dwelling on what we lack brings on stress and depression. The simple things we take for granted on a daily basis such as safe drinking water and toilets are only dreams to more than half the people in the world. If you go to sleep each night in a safe dry place, you are more fortunate than many in your own community.
Showing gratitude is not complicated it’s as simple as saying thank you.
