More Good News and Bad News


I had a note the other day from Paul Evered. Paul is the Executive Director at the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (Calgary, Alberta).

They are planning a large event. He asked me about an e-mail I had sent out some time ago. “It had to do something about good news and bad news,” he wrote.

At my age, memory isn’t always my most notable attribute. But I did recall what he had in mind. You may be able to use this also at a meeting of your board or at some special gathering.

There’s good news. And there’s bad news. The good news is that in this room we have all the money we need to put our program over goal. The bad news is that it’s still in your pockets.
