1Dear Presidents dan fellow Rotarians,
Assalamualaikum, Wr. Wb., Salam Sejahtera, Om Swastiastu, Nammo Buddhaya.
Tidak terasa sudah 2 bulan saya melakukan pengabdian sebagai District Governor D 3420, dan hampir separuh klub di District ini sudah saya kunjungi, banyak sekali pelajaran berharga yang saya dapatkan. Klub yang beraneka ragam budaya dan kebiasaan telah membuka wawasan saya terhadap pengabdian kita di Rotary dan kebesaran lembaga pengabdian ini. Saya semakin yakin bahwa Rotary adalah tempat untuk kita berbagi tanpa memandang ras, agama, suku bangsa serta tingkat social, tujuan kita hanya satu yaitu PENGABDIAN KEPADA KEMANUSIAAN.

I am increasingly convinced that the Rotary is a place for us to share regardless of race, religion , ethnicity and social level , we have only one purpose , namely DEDICATED TO HUMANITY .

Yours in Rotary,
A. Mufid WahyudiDistrict Governor D-3420
In the 1930s, Ole Kirk Christiansen, a Danish carpenter, had a wooden sign hanging on his wall that read, Det bedste er ikke for godt: Only the best is good enough. Today, Christiansen is remembered as the inventor of Lego, the colorful plastic bricks beloved by chil-dren around the world. But in the early days of the Lego company, its signature product was a wooden duck one built to the highest standards, out of aged beech, with three coats of clear varnish. Legos company history tells how Christiansen used his ducks to teach a lesson in quality to his son, Godtfred Kirk:
One evening, when I came into the office, I said to my father: Its been a good day today, Dad. Weve earned a little more. Oh, said Dad, what do you mean? Well, Ive just been to the station with two boxes of our toy ducks for the Danish Co op. Normally they get three coats of varnish, but since its for the Co-op, I only gave them two. So I saved the business a bit of money. He looked at me in dismay. Godtfred, fetch those boxes back. Unpack them and give the ducks another coat of varnish. Youre not going to bed until the works done and youll do it all on your own. There was no arguing with Dad. And it was a lesson for me about what quality meant.
Today, Legos quality standards are legendary, and its products are the most popular toys in the world: Lego pieces outnumber humans 86 to 1.We all recognize that this success stems directly from Legos business practices its insistence on quality, efficiency, and innovation. I compare this with our efforts in
governance and accountability in Rotary, and realize that sometimes we fall short of the standards expected.The leaders at the Rotary International, zone, district, and club levels have to maintain the highest standards in governance. The RI president and directors must serve the
membership in a meaningful manner; zone leaders must deliver on the investment Rotary makes in them; district leaders must provide dynamic leadership in the district and focus on transparency in accounting and timely reporting of financials; and club leaders must adhere to proper reporting functions and get their clubs onto Rotary Club Central.
Just as Christiansen refused to consider sending a lesser product to any of his clients, so should we refuse to consider giving a lesser effort to any of our work. We must always demand the best of ourselves in our professional lives, and especially in our Rotary work.
For in Rotary, what is our product? It is not wooden ducks or plastic bricks. It is education, water, health, and peace. It is hope, and it is life itself. For this work, only our best is good enough. I ask you all to remember this and to do your very best to Be a Gift to the World.
