Losing Control Without Losing Your Mind

How to Cope with losing control

6 Easy Steps To Save You from Losing Control

“It’s not the fall that gets you.” Have you ever heard somebody say that? I overheard two older folks talking about their fear of falling one time and one of them said that it’s not the actual fall that hurts you, it’s what you do to try and stop it. All the twisting end up making it all worse. Losing control causes the same reaction.

Every election cycle, candidates lose control of their races (more properly, they never had it in the first place!). When they realize they’re not actually in control, their reactions often make the situation worse. Like slipping and falling in the bath tub, trying to fight it makes it worse.

What Can I Control?

Here’s the thing. You can control variables that impact your campaign ($’s raised, doors knocked, systems, public speaking ability, etc) but you’re lying to yourself if you think you can actually control your race.

7 Easy Steps to the Perfect Volunteer Briefing

7 Easy Steps to the Perfect Volunteer Briefing

Is Your Volunteer Briefing a Recipe for Failure?

Running a grassroots campaign means you're going to rely on a lot on volunteers. They're likely to be the fuel for your voter-contact operations. Giving them a proper volunteer briefing is critical but often overlooked. 

Campaigns spend a lot of time recruiting volunteers but not enough effort into preparing them. Let's take a second and dwell on how crazy that is... 

Your volunteers are a major interface between your campaign and your voters. You've spent tons of time recruiting them so they can be effective ambassadors when canvassing. But you are "too busy" to prepare them before deploying them to contact voters.
