About John Rajcic

Dr. John Rajcic

My personal philosophy is anchored in optimism.

The San Diego Country Estates (SDCE) is a nice place to live . The golf course and equestrian center are focal points. Timeshares, lodging and the restaurant contribute to an appealing environment. Activities in these areas should be revenue generating or self-sustaining.

My neighbors , the silent majority, don’t get involved in these activities . They see the $1248.00 HOA dues as a tax . They tell me that the SDCE has not experienced growth in over 20 years and after 40 years the SDCE should function like a “ well oiled machine” ,they don’t believe it does.

The Board Of Directors (Board)are elected to do the right thing. The General Manager (GM) has been employed to do things right. By default , a major function of the GM is to manage the Board. This does not preclude the Board from firing the GM. Effective managers are visible , hands-on and know how to say no to competing demands and still inspire confidence. The GM’s role is often symbolic and instinctive. The GM’s office is where his shoes are. They do not avoid , repress or deny conflict but see it as inevitable in a dynamic organization and a basis for positive change.

It is a mystery and hard to imagine a more questionable way of making decisions than putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for “goofs”.

Attitude throughout the SDCE is a little thing but it makes a big difference.

The SDCE is not an eleemosynary organization and exists for “all” residents.

Long range planning does not deal with future decisions but the future of present decisions.

No legacy is so rich as honesty.
