Would You Rather

The new season of 30 Rock started on NBC this week.  During this week’s episode Liz Lemon is repeatedly asked, ‘would you rather’ questions.  It struck me that the social sector often plays this game on a regular basis.

Would you rather ask your peers for a donation or make cuts to the budget?
Would you rather pay our most important staff member a very hefty salary or have a competitor recruit her away?
Would we rather put up with the inconsiderate board member who breaks the organizational moral or confront him and endure his anger?

We each have our own, ‘would you rather’ moments.  Often there are additional solutions to the question but we are too busy assessing the options place in front of us.
