A good friend of mine, Dave, runs the Boston Marathons each year in memory of his son Nick and in support of a local charity that was important to both of them. Dave and writes a blog about his marathon experience and I receive updates. The title of this post is taken from Dave’s latest update.
The most recent update was so well written and moving I wrote to Dave telling him how much I was moved by what he had written and asked how he was able to produce such a piece. Dave replied, “The words are easy when they come from the heart.” This is something for us to bear in mind while we are writing proposals.
It is also worth bearing in mind what Dave speaks of as he writes about “hope” as it applies to marathons, as this also applies to many other endeavors, including proposals. And while I would never compare the efforts Dave puts in to run a marathon or the purpose behind his running, I think much of what Dave speaks about regarding hope applies to the work we do and what it sometimes takes to complete a proposal.
I asked Dave for permission to direct you, our readers, to the blog so that you could also enjoy and benefit from his insights and he graciously agreed. The link to the blog is http://speakerscorner-dave.blogspot.com/. I encourage you to read the blog and to follow and enjoy Dave’s journey and writing.
Strategic Proposals LLC makes a donation to the Lazarus House in Nick’s name and in support of Dave’s running and I encourage our readers to make a donation.
