Notes from the Governor
It’s here all ready the final quarter of the Rotary year. All those things you promised yourself in June of last year that you were going to accomplish in the 2016-17 Rotary year are either done or waiting to be completed before the ball drops on June 30 at midnight. There are less than ten weeks left in the 2016-17 Rotary year. As I’m looking at my own list of things I wanted to accomplish this year, I’m beginning to realize that I’m long on list and short on time. Doing some prioritizing seems to be in order.
My list of goals certainly contains things that are a higher priority than others. The important goals, however, always seem to be the most time consuming. As I prioritize, I’m looking for some lowhanging fruitthese items that with a little effort could make me feel better by getting a few things crossed off my list. Getting bogged down in a big daunting project has a way of undermining my enthusiasm.
Elephants are best eaten one bite at a time, and I certainly have more than one elephant on my list. I’m using every available resource to finish this year strong and get as many of my Rotary goals completed as possible. Don’t hesitate to use the resources that are available to you in the District as well. Even the Governor is willing to help. I, of all people, have a vested interest in helping you have the best Rotary year you and your club have ever had. So when it comes to eating your Rotary elephant, pass the salt and let’s do this together.
