story thumbnail

Calendar Year or “Rotary Year” - it can be confusing, especially when reporting statistics related to polio. GPEI, the CDC, and WHO report Polio case numbers using the calendar year; yet in Rotary we report dollars raised to End Polio using the Rotary year (July 1 through June 30). It is useful to periodically assess where we are with both.

Do I Really Need to Listen to Others?

story thumbnail
The world is in a very conflicted state. Some say the cause is greed, ego, evilness, bigotry, or a variety of terms to describe “bad people.” While those may be legitimate factors, my thirty years of resolving disputes among individuals has shown me that each side always attributes those traits to the other side. There must be more to it. Misunderstandings caused by our failure to listen, our propensity to make assumptions, and a failure to apply critical thinking skills are the real culprits.

Rotarians love to tell stories. They are usually touching and inspirational. They tell of needs and hardships worldwide, experiences Rotarians and others have had, and the wonderful things we have done or plan to do.
