Run to Win in 2024, Day 2 #RUN2WIN2024

 September 18, 2022  

Day 2 #RUN2WIN2024

Start now!

That's the daily mantra of winning campaigns. The best time to start moving forward is right now as you read this. Commit yourself in your own mind. Or if you can't, that's what to work on today and each day until you can.

Don't declare publicly. Don't start writing a plan. Carve out some time and listen. One good way to do that is to start or join an Online dialogue group such as the SBCC Online Socrates Cafe. 

Many people around the world find this helpful to this dailey reflection. If you have something you listen to each day, please share it by posting a link to it in the comments below, or on our new Run to Win Facebook Page that will be set up by 12 noon today Denver time for an announcement at our noon Monday meeting

1ST Day, join us here each day on Educational, not political. Our purpose is to strengthen the voice of the common man, and we are all common men, but sometimes we just loose our voice. If that's you, this will help. All you have to do is be here, you're a member if you say you are.

Day1, are you the candidate or are you helping another good person run for the first time?

There will only be one requirement, that you attend at least one Online Socrates Cafes, and that you help by attending at least the first as you or another volunteer starts a new public, face-to-face Socrates Cafe in your local library, coffee shop, or other public meeting place.

More about this tomorrow, or join me tonight, 6:30 p.m. Denver Mountain Daylight Time on our Zoom via  Questions? Call (303)861-1447 #RUN2WIN2024
