Pro-Tip: Set Goals

One of my recruiting best practices is to set clear goals for your volunteers. Sure, a volunteer might not meet the goal you set for her, but she is much more likely to meet and exceed it if you put it out there. Behold!

It is really worth your time to zoom in to read the complaints scrawled all over this tally sheet including "should have worn a pedometer" and "No lunch! No supper!" But despite complaining that the 50 door goal was "totally unrealistic," the volunteer surpassed the goal by nine doors! GOOOOOOAL!
