Why Volunteer

Once upon a time, there were four people: Their names were Everybody, somebody, Nobody, and Anybody. Whenever there was an important job to be done. Everybody was sure the Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. When Nobody did it, Everybody got angry because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought that Somebody would do it, but Nobody realized that Nobody would do it. So consequently Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done in the first place.

This is important when it is time to change Leadership in the troop. Everybody should not expect Somebody to do the job that Anybody can do. When that happens Nobody steps up to do the job that Anybody can do, then Somebody has to do the job that Anybody can do and Everybody loses.
