VMAP—Just Do It!

The year 1988 marked the launch of one of the most successful advertising campaigns in American business history. With its “Just Do It” advertising campaign, NIKE, Inc. increased sales from $877 million to $9.2 billion and dominated with 43% of the American short-shoe market.

Can we learn something more from that slogan? Does it make a difference if we “Just Do It” when it comes to our daily lives and behaviors at home, work and play, and specifically in the Scottish Rite with the Valley Membership Achievement Project (VMAP)? Are there tools that can help us to get work done in our Valleys, to better engage the brethren with focus on teams, subsequently leading to motivated discovery of things new?
