Go for a steady state not something you have to work to maintain

This campaign tip (no. 105) was published on Monday, 15th April 2019
I'm writing this camaigning ideas 'blog' or diary on a daily basis and ... goodness, there are days that so much else is happening I'm pushed for time. Enjoying it still - but a finite project. Now - it would be far more efficient use of my time if I should have provided a way for it to write itself!

These pages are written by Graham Ellis of Melksham, Wiltshire. Overlapping a life in IT and IT training, with running a hotel and campaigning for improved public transport, Graham has never been quiet - though he's starting to wind down gently now. He no longer takes overnight guests and has stepped doen from the "Community Rail Officer" role which he accidentally aquired. So he now has more time to write pages such as these and to travel in the UK. He'll be delighted to speak with your group or take a look through your case or camapaign, but be alerted that his time is not limitless even now, and he still has to keep the wolf from the door.

What a difference a campaign makes!

It probably wouldn't have happened without a strong community campaign with which I have been involved. Most days through 2019 I'll be sharing a thought, an idea, a way of working or an experience. Come back here for the links. Discussions via the Coffee Shop Forum - Graham Ellis, 31st December 2018
