HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD , FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2010 7 Just A Thought Tell me where the line is so I don&apos;t step over it Rick Kraft By RICK KRAFT Where is the line? What is the limit? Where is the edge? I need to know so I don't step over it.- These questions are a way of life for some. There are people in this world who want the line to be .defined so they know just how far they can go without going out of bounds. People who ask this question typically seek to push the boundaries as far as they can. Once the line is defined, they generally walk right up to it. When I think of this concept I think of a visit to Roswell several years ago by the judges from the New Mexico Court of Appeals in Santa Fe. They were participating in the local bar association Law Day program which occurs each .year near May 1 ='. The appellate court members sat in front of the stu- dents at a local high school and 0nswered questions from students regarding their position as judges and their interpreting the laws of New Mexico.- One student asked the ques- tion "What if my friend has my stereo and won't give it back. Can I go to his house and take it from him?" After the question was an- swered and the student didn't like his inabilityto go get his stereo, the student asked "What if the stereo is. just inside my friend's bedroom window and I can see it. Can I go get it then?" Again,the isfy the student. The student then asked "What if my stereo is just inside my friend's bedroom window and his window is open. Can I then grab it from outside and take it back?" After this series of ques- tions, it became clear to me that the student was going to keep asking questions until he found one that worked for him. In a nutshell he wanted to know where the line was so he could walk right up to it...or step over it if necessary. The problem is that many things in this world are not black and white. They are gray. Many people don't like gray areas. Gray areas require judg- ment skills and independent de- cisions. Black and white makes every act either right or wrong. If you can define the line then, whether you stay a mile away from the line or step right up to it, you are not stepping over it...you are staying in bounds. The inter- esting thing about this black or white test is that if you stay a mile away from the line, you will never step over it. If you walk right up to the line, a simple slip of the foot will cause the line to be bro- ken. There are countless areas, of our lives where lines exist. Some are clear, some are not so clear. Areas of our lives where this con- cept applies would include mo- rality, faith, family, finances, time. There are boundaries that exist in The ultimate question is "What standard do you live by?" If your test is "How far can I go without getting in trouble?," this is a different standard than "What is the best choice under this cir- cumstance?" If your test is "Is it immoral?," that is a different test than "What would Jesus do?" If your test is "Am I violating any law by doing that?," this is a dif- ferent test than "By taking that action, am I helping another or am I causing another to stumble?" What tests do you use in your " life? If you sincerely shared the tests you apply to make decisions in your life, you would truly re- veal your soul.. I guess what I am saying is that there is a very broad gap be- tween each of the sample tests above. If you use the tests at one end of the spectrum, you ask ques- "tions such as "Can I do that with- out getting in trouble?," "Is do- ing that legal?," or "Can I do that without being immoral?" Your benchmark is "What is the fur- thest I can go?" Or "What is the closest I can get to the line?" If you use the tests at the other end of the spectrum you ask questions like "What is my best choice under the circum- stances?," "What is the right thing to do?," "Can I help another by doing that?," or "Is this action consistent with my future dreams?" There are lines that are drawn by the law. Th.en there are lines that each of us draw individually. What I am saying is that there are countless things in this world any one of us can do that are legal, but are wrong. If we live by the test "If it is legal it must be alright to do,"we are living by a Iower standard than we need to_ be liv= ing by. Let me give you an example. Let's take the act of gossiping. Each of us make decisions as to whether or not to gossip. If the" test is "Is it illegal?," we could gossip at any time about any- thing. If the test is "Is it im- moral?," most all gossip would be permitted. If the test is "Does the gossip hurt another?," some gos- siping would be permitted. If the test is "What is the right thing to do?," we would probably not gos- sip at all. Different tests provide differ- ent filters as to what is spoken and what isn't. And as we think, there we also go. I would hope that your definition of right and wrong is a answer from the judge didn't sat- many areas. !

My challenge to you today is set your standards far higher than the minimum necessary to keep you out of trouble. Ask ques- tions that cause you to do the best you can under the circumstances such as "what is the best choice given the existing circum- stances?" Don't worry where the line is. If you are worried about the line, you have set your standards too low. You are on a "minimum" path. Don't live your life trying to determine where the minimum line is so you can make sure you don't step over it. Set your tests high and then apply these tests to decisions you make. By doing this it won't re- ally matter where the line is.. Just a thought... Rick Kraft is a motivational speaker, a published author, and an attorney.

The ultimate question is one of us can do that are legal, Where is the line? What is The student then asked "What standard do you live by?" hut are wrong. If we live by the the limit? Where is the edge? l "What if my stereo is just inside If your test is "How far c I go test "If it is legal it must be ahight nteed to know so I don't step over my friend's bedroom window and without getting in trouble?," this to do."we are living by a lower 1. his window is open Can 1 then is a different standard than "What standard than we need to be ]iv, These questions e a way of grab it from outside and take it is the best choice under this cir- life for some.

If they know just how far going to keep asking your test !s "Am I violating any they can go without questions until he law by doing that?. ' this is a dif going out of bounds, found one that worked ferent test than "By taking that People who ask this for him.

Once walk right up to it. or life? If you sincerely shared the the line is defined, they step over it if necessy. I gedelly walk right up The problem is Ihal I to it. RiekKrat many things in this world  not black and t When I think of t this concept 1 think of a visit to Roswell several years ago by the judges from the New Mexico Court of Appeals in Santa Fe. They were participating in the local bar association Law Day program which occurs each yew ne May 1% The appellate court members sat in front of the stu- dents at a local high school and swered questions from students gding their position as judges d their interpreting the laws of New Mexico. One student asked the ques- t. tion "What if my friend has my stereo and won't give it back. C I go to his house and take it from him?" After the question was an- swered and the student didn't like his inability to go get his stereo, the student asked "What if the ste-eo is just inside my friend's bedroom window and I can see it. C 1 go get it then?" Again. the whge. They e gray. Mmly people don't like gray areas. Gray areas require judg- ment skills and independent de- cisions. Black and white makes every act either tight or wrong. If yoti can define the line then, whether you stay a mile away from the line or step right up to it, you are not stepping over it...you e staying in bounds. The inter- esting thing about this black or white test is that if you stay a mile away fim the line, you will never step ov it. If you walk tight up to the line. a simple slip of the foot will cause the line to be bro- ken. There are countless areas, of our lives where lines exist, Some are clear, some are not so clear. Areas of our lives where this con- cept applies would include mo- rality, faith, farmly, finances, tkne. Tbe e boundaries that exist in FORESTI Si/ver City Beginning October 1, 2010, Gila National Forest personnel will be conducting a recreation use sudsy known as the Nadonal Visitor Use Monitoring (NVUM) program.

I guess what I am saying is that there is a very broad gap be tween each of the sample tests aboe If you use the tests at one end of the spectrum, you ask ques- tions such as "Can 1 do that with- out getting in trouble?," "Is do- ing that legal'?," or "C I do that without being immoral?" Your benchmark is "What is the fur- thest I can go?" Or "What is the closest I can get to the line?" If you use the teals at the other end of the egectmm you ask questions like "What is my best choice under the circum- stances?." "What is the right thing to do?Y "Can 1 help another by doing that?." or "Is this action consistent with my future dreams?" Tbe we lines that are drawn b$ the law. Tfien Ihere are lines that each of us draw individually. What 1 am saying is that there are countless things in this world any answer from the judge didn't sat- y eas.
