When rewards become our goals, we are only pursuing part of our work. Perhaps the titles of two of his other books, Called to Serve, and in Serving Community, offer a clue on what DePree meant about the pitfall of regarding goals and rewards as one and the same. Rewards can take many forms, but typically they are self-serv ing, focused on greater compensation, professional advancement, prestige and power. Or a company may set goals to While such goals are not in trinsically wrong, they can keep us from embracing goals with broader impact and meaning. Such as helping others to grow professionally so they can realize their potential, even if it means moving on to opportunities beyond their cur rent employment.

The resolution was passed unanimously by the city council and promoting and encouraging a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. This came after the city council members were presented with economic policies meant to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the Citizens Climate Representatives Bipartisan Climate Solu tions Caucus. Council member Monica Mayo tte, who is associated with the Citizens Climate Lobby, brought the resolution forward. She made her stance on climate change well-known while running for the city council seat earlier this year and was Board from 2009-2016. She believes that while climate change is addressed on a larger level, it is important to still make strides on a local level as well. Congress is already exploring efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emis sions through the work of the Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, and as they do their part nationally, well do our part locally, she said. Climate change is not a partisan issue, and we support and encourage the work of the Caucus at the national level. Congressman Ted Deutch, a founding member of the Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, praised the city council for passing the resolution. South Floridians of all political stripes understand the urgent threat climate change poses to our way of life, he said. Thats because rising tides and worsening storms are already affecting of Democrats and Republicans so that we can start the conversation for bipartisan climate action. Congress should follow the lead of Boca Raton and the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Com pact to put science above politics and act now on this growing threat. The resolution follows one that was passed by the Boca Raton City Coun port for the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact.
