1. I will not call myself an accidental admin
Let’s face it. I didn’t get into working in the nonprofit world because it just happened. And like everything I do, I approach this database with purpose. Coming at it from a systems perspective rather than a technical one makes it no less worthy. I am an impact specialist in my nonprofit. I won’t let anyone else discount my work by calling it accidental.
2. I will upgrade!
January is Upgrade month, and this is the time I will make a plan to upgrade to the Nonprofit Starter Pack 3.0 Upgrade. I might be surprised to learn that I can do it myself with some dedicated time and planning. I will look for more resources on this blog, the Salesforce.org blog and other partner sites this month!
3. I will seek out community.
There’s nothing more disheartening than struggling with a technical or organizational issue on my own. I will find and connect in the Power of Us Hub. I will attend a local user group meeting. I will connect with Girlforce. I’ll talk about more than Salesforce. It will be fun.
4. I will help someone else.
This actually takes courage. Answering a question publicly exposes me to other’s (sometimes contrary) opinions. I don’t always feel like I know very much, or have much to share. I will do it anyway.
5. I will keep learning.
This year, I will make it a priority to carve out precious time to learn something new – that I am passionate about, or that solves one of my organization’s pain points. I will do a Trailhead online (free) training path, just to push myself.
Here’s to more impact-making in 2016!
