And the Results are In

Last week, you may remember, I invited you to participate in an online survey. In a moment I will explain why, but first here are the results…

20% of the people who opened my email clicked to take the survey. That tells me that, either surveys are generally not that appealing, or that specific topic was not that appealing.

Question 1: Do you like to take online surveys?

90% of you said, “It depends.”
10% of you said, “Never!”

​​​​​​​Question 2: ​​​​​​​How many questions are ideal for an online survey?

20% said 1-3
30% said 4-6
10% said 7-9
20% said 10-15
20% said it didn’t matter

Question 3: Does having pictures help?

40% said Absolutely!
60% said Naw, it doesn’t really matter.

So, why all the fuss? Why was this survey important?

The reason is simple. I want to get to know you. I want to know what motivates and inspires you. I want to find the best way to do that. I want to make a difference in your life. I want to help you make a difference in your own life and in the lives of the people you care about.

Here’s the lesson, or the moral of the story, that I’ve learned: Don’t assume you know the most effective way to be the difference. Get to know the people that you feel called to serve. I’ve heard it said, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”

This week, let’s let people know how much we care!

Until next time…
