“When we plant a seed there is a natural time period required for the seed to germinate. Further, there is a natural time period for the plant or tree to grow into maturity. Later, there is a natural time at which the tree or plan will bear fruit or flowers. In our “get everything instantly” world, if no visible or tangible results occur immediately, we give up or determine the approach was not effective. We are constantly looking for validation of our efforts through tangible results. Many people measure their lives on “wins” or “today’s bottom line.” Yet planting seeds is the most effective way to yield long-term and lasting results. The seed germinates and the plant grows with the right balance of care, not by over-watering in hopes it will grow faster.”
Gary Spinell, in “Beyond Intent”
