Five Tips for new Pioneers

quote ideas tips advice out of the box thinkingAfter being in post for five years, here are five pieces of advice to new pioneers starting out. They are not rocket science but useful to remember.

In no particular order here they are. I’ll expand on each in future blog posts.

  1.  Pray a lot. We can’t do this in our own power
  2. Time hanging out with people (doing nothing in particular) is not time wasted.
  3. Find a team and form alliances.
  4. Five year plans are useful but don’t expect to stick to them.
  5.  Expect opposition from somewhere, even from unexpected places
