Jim Martin retired after a 30 year career with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Since then he has been able to reflect on those years as a field biologist, fish researcher, harvest manager, chief of fisheries, and governor's advisor. His reflections have centered on asking, "How much of all that work really mattered?" What portion of my efforts and passion were spent on what someone else saw as the urgent, while the important and meaningful got away from me?
His sentiments on leadership are recorded here in his voice, as a motivating message to everyone from young and aspiring students to mid-career professionals to retired administrators.
