I am planting today
Is this a coincidence or not? Do you believe in signs, I do. Today these words of wisdom crossed my path two different ways and I thought maybe God was trying to tell me something.
The naive farmer farms as his parents, grandparents and great grandparents did. She plants, hopes and harvests. Anything that goes well or poorly is the work of the gods.
The professional farmer measures. She tests. She understands how systems work and is constantly tweaking to improve them. When failure happens, she doesn't rest until she understands why.
By planting the right crop in the right place in the right season, the farmer brings harmony to the cultivation of plants, and prosperity to his family.
Similarly, any business must adjust to the natural cycles of the season; only through flexibility and adaptation can order and growth be maintained.
We are suddenly real busy in fact last night the other designer had an appointment in the showroom. With the lights on some customers stop in around 7:30.
It feels great to have things moving again and a full plate. I took today's messages to mean carefully plant and tend to your garden. Be wise in what your planting for the future and tend to what has already been planted.
Off to work.
