I first heard the phrase, “Just Focus, Do It,” at Rapport Leadership. You’ve probably seen it in my Facebook status updates or tweets as, “JFDI” (although, my version of the acronym varies slightly).
Either way, JFDI is a verb to me—it means taking action without making excuses. And, of course, it’s perfect for a hashtag.
The power of focused intention combined with bold action will make huge changes in your life. And, a community that collectively focuses its intentions and takes bold action can change the world.
Over 16 million children in America face an unnecessary struggle with hunger. This is inexcusable. Our nation has plenty of food, and we have the solutions to this problem. What we need collectively is more people with the will to JFDI.
Right now, all across this nation, over 9,000 restaurants are participating in the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry. Our collective goal is to raise over 10 million dollars for the No Kid Hungry campaign, which aims to eradicate childhood hunger in the U.S. over the next few years. If we reach our goal, millions of meals will be provided for hungry kids in our own communities.
These children are voiceless, they’re not old enough to vote, and they can’t afford lobbyists. So today, we’re going to use our voices, our influence, and the super powers of the internet to give them a voice, some help, and some hope. We won’t stop today until we’ve reached our goal.
There are many things we want to change in the world, and there are many things we’re making better. But, we also know we’ll be passing along many of these things to the next generation for them to solve.
Childhood hunger in America will not be one of those things.
Five years from today, we could be sitting around saying, “We did that … we were part of the movement that ended childhood hunger in America.” And when people ask us how we did it, we’ll say we decided to “just FN do it.”
