We have all heard of it. Organized Chaos. Sometimes, I will admit, organized chaos can be fun. However, organized chaos should be the exception, not the rule. Organized chaos is still, after all, chaos. Boys and parents can spot chaos and even though the boys may enjoy it, the parent probably will not. If you are the one who is in charge of the “organized chaos”, you have to ask yourself… “How can I change this?”
It’s called planning. And it isn’t that hard to do. Use the program helps, ask senior leaders, talk to your parents. Use your parents as a resource for the boys. That parent talent survey… look them over from time to time. Most people will help, if you ask them.
I know I’m not the smartest person I know, but I try to utilized everyone I can to provide the best program possible for the Scouts. Plan, task organize, coordinate and then execute. After the execution of the task, evaluate what you have done or have those around you evaluate it. What was good? What was bad? How can we make it better? And from Chaos, He created order….. be a creator.
