Know Yourself

"I used to believe it was enough if one had good professional knowledge, a strong ethical base, and appreciation for your customers -- the people and value systems in our communities -- and a conviction about the importance of sustaining our environment for future generations. I now know this alone is not adequate. While these critical components are important, what is really necessary is the balance of these external elements with one's inner self. In short, to be a good planner, you first have to be a good person -- one who has emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual harmony within oneself." (Peter Bloodoff, former President of the Canadian Institue of Planners, 1995)
