Are You Planting Seeds Today?
"Do not measure success by today's harvest. Measure success by the seeds you plant today." ~Robert Louis Stevenson
Are you measuring your success by today's harvest? Why? Is it that need for instant gratification? What is driving that measurement of today? Stevenson says to measure your success by the seeds that you plant today. There used to be something called delayed gratification...and it was even better than instant gratification.
Are you planting seeds for tomorrow, or are you only concerned with today? That's another challenge for our microwave society. We don't even want to think long-term, only how can I get it now??
It's been said that we can learn from watching nature. Well, in nature, there is always a gestation period, for plants, trees, animals and even humans. Live in the present but Stop living for the right now. Start planning for the future. "I am planning for the future," you say. Really, I ask? Really??
Know. Be Known. Make A Difference!
