A good rule of thumb is to spend the majority of your time working on the projects which have the biggest long-term impact upon your community.
In 5 to 10 years time, what will still be standing in your community?
This is harder to do than it often seems.
Right now you have to respond to aggravated members, create the latest report, ensure discussions are being responded to, remove the bad members, train a new staff member etc…
The first step is giving yourself some breathing room by cutting down on tasks which are useful but not game-changing. Think welcome emails, most webinars, and promoting members to participate.
The second step is to invest this spare time, even if it’s just a few hours a week, to designing social or technological systems which do as much of your work as possible. It’s far better, for example, to have members interviewing other members for webinars, having a welcome committee to welcome newcomers, and removing bad posts.
The third is to identify the really game-changing wins. Ask your members, in a perfect world, what would be the most ideal/useful thing for you? And start building those things.
It’s a safe bet that your technology will be different in a decade, but the culture you create, the network you build between members, and the resources you create (constantly updated) will still be around.
