As President, one of my goals is to develop a well rounded Rotarian. By this time next year, I hope to say that each member has a broader knowledge of Rotary and has found a niche they love to serve in. I will also strive to build meaningful partnerships between our Club and local businesses, schools and organizations in an effort to bring about positive change within our community locally and hopefully globally.
When I was first introduced to Rotary, I embraced the idea of being surrounded by fellow business people who value the four-way test of the things we think, say and do. The four-way test is something that resonates with me deeply and serves as a model in which I strive to incorporate within every aspect of my life on a daily basis.
I’d like to share some thoughts that I found to be particularly inspiring:
- If you plant honesty, you will reap trust
- If you plant goodness, you will reap friends
- If you plant humility, you will reap greatness
- If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment
If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective
If you plant hard work, you will reap success
If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation
So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.
Let’s begin this year and plant these seeds and see what blooms. Let us mirror this and grow as Rotarians and as a club. Engage Rotary, Change Lives.
