Nothing is better than renewed efforts put forth by people who had given up or lost focus. It can be in the form of effort, or investment, which requires effort – so that counts, too.
We are “back to fall” and for some reason, it just is a busier work season – at least in comparison to summer. I think it is more than just vacations, I think it is just a mindset.
- A let’s take a break and go to the beach this weekend.
- Heck, let’s take Friday off.
- Or, it’s so hot out, I really don’t have any energy to go outside and do anything.
- The kids are home from school and they aren’t doing anything either. (Which reminds me, I have something else to say about that, but we will table that topic for another day, maybe an entire week. Remind me if I forget.)
Organizations sometimes take summer breaks. Leadership wants time to think, the staff want time off, the volunteers – well, they just aren’t volunteering or maybe they have other groups they support out of doors.
Even though this is not the spring season, I am pleasantly surprised and happy that people have come back with renewed efforts to make the world better again.

PS I guess the threat of someone they don’t want to see move into the White House will also do that.
