- Your circumstances - are you employed, do you have any energy left, what is your bank account telling you, how urgent is the need for activism in your state?
- Your state/region - what are the issues, will you need to work for the party in the off-season (preparing), are there local issues to contend with?
- What is your passion - issues, dreams, plans, relationships? Is there a current issue that drives you? For me, it is always immigration - those Congressional cockroaches always seem to have another proposed bill up their sleeves. Although the need ebbs and flows, most of the time, I need to be on top of this issue, lest they slip a fast one by us.
