On the SpotWhat single piece of wisdom or advice do you try to live by?

“Do unto others as you would have done unto you. Although I do not always succeed, I try to live by this rule, which I hope has increased my empathy toward others. Many times, this saying reminds me to stop and think before speaking, and it has also taught me to really listen to what others are saying.”
Jalene Bowersmith
Program Manager
International Policy Council on Agriculture, Food and Trade
Washington, D.C.

“Check, double check, triple check, quadruple check and then do it again. This was drilled home to me once when, much to my horror, I noticed somehow no written order had been sent to the kitchen for a lunch for almost 50 people. The average idiot could have seen this oversight; but then, I’m not the average idiot.”
Matthew E. Rodina Jr.
Meeting Planner
Conference of Historic Aviation Writers
St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
“Keep your heart open and stay on bended knee. I try to keep my mind focused because, along with being a meeting planner, I am in school full time, a wife and a mother of three children.”
Bernadette McAllister
Training Coordinator
North Carolina Council of Community Programs
Raleigh, N.C.
