What Happens When You Try Something New?

When your business or nonprofit or church thinks about trying something new, is there an excitement? Or is there a nervousness?

After all, it could fail. You could think about bringing seven interns on board, and they could all screw up, do terrible work, and completely waste your time. So, maybe you shouldn't try it.

Or, you could get people so talented and gifted that one of them just got accepted into Teach for America for this fall.

Congrats, Lauren. I can't wait to see what you'll be able to do with us the rest of the semester before going off to change more worlds in August.

When you try something new, you learn something new.
