I gave a forestry talk last year at a Portland Rotary Club meeting, on behalf of the Oregon Forest Resources Institute. As a thank-you gift, I received a Portland Pearl Rotary coffee mug. Printed on the mug is Rotary’s Four-Way Test Of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
We’d all do well to keep the Four-Way Test in mind as we blog. Hey, it might also help if everyone involved in forest planning did, too.
