Old-Fashioned career advice from the outgoing GIS Director William F. Johnson March 19, 2018 9

Take the High Road There is zero satisfaction in telling someone off or having a tantrum. Zero. Youll feel like a bum afterwards and nobody will respect you. When you take the High Road, others will surely admire you for it, even if they dont express anything to you. Youll have a clear conscience.

You will be more easily forgiven for your inevitable mistakes if you show the same respect and kindness to others. Burned bridges may not seem important now, but you may need to cross one of those bridges in the future. 10
