Someone recently asked me if I ever felt like I was preaching to the choir with my columns. He said he felt the people who read my columns are the same people who already take a positive attitude toward community. He guessed my readers are probably the 20 percent in the 80/20 rule. (The rule states that 80 percent of the work is done by 20 percent of the people). He figured the ones who could use the wisdom in the articles either don't bother to read them, or they do read the articles but think it doesn't apply to them. I told him, "Absolutely not. I don't feel like I am preaching to the choir because when it comes to investment in yourself and your community, there is no choir."
