If you don’t prepare, it is unlikely you will do a task the best you can. A few weeks ago, I volunteered to promote ‘R U Ok? Day‘ which aims to promote suicide prevention in Australia.
I volunteered to this cause in 2017 too but I feel like I did a better job in 2017 than this year. The issue I had was I didn’t know the activities well (didn’t look through the training materials before the event properly) and was not confident in approaching people since I was worried I would fail to communicate clearly. Moral of the story? Prepare. Literally prepare. Don’t expect to ‘wing it’ without preparation, you are likely to not do it well.
