One Goal At A Time (or, This is Probably Garbage)

I’m going to get better, promise.

Have patience.

I do.

…with myself.

Here’s my plan:

Goal #1: post every day.

Goal #2: post something meaningful sometimes.

Goal #3: Post something meaningful almost every day.

I’m still working on Goal #1.

For how long?

Until Goal #2 starts to happen. (It may have already started, but I’m not counting it.)

Eventually Goal #3 will happen.

Probably when I get fed up with posting useless stuff. Or bored with it.

For now, I’m still excited accomplishing Goal #1. It’s a struggle or effort every day. As soon as it becomes effortless is when I get working on the next goals.

I like the freedom of posting garbage.

Hey, it’s my site. I can.

You don’t have to read or listen to any of it. (In fact, it’s probably not worth it yet.)

(Except for the occasional interesting post.)


Wise Words

“If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”


This is one of my favorite quotes.

You think that it is going to be some wise advise, but it actually is very practical and literal, just like Winnie the Pooh.

And there’s the wisdom.

Sometimes we complicate things, when in reality, the answer is quite simple.

Be patient.

It Takes Time

This year, we chose to support our local tree farm, pay a little extra, and chop down our own Christmas tree.

It’s always a fun experience looking for just the right tree. Everyone has a different perspective on what is right for them, or their house, so it’s always a personal preference to find ‘the one’.

What’s interesting to me is the business model for Christmas tree farms. Here is something that took around 10 years to grow, and then you come let people cut them down in a few minutes. And in a few weeks your whole crop is gone.

We should have the patience of the Christmas tree farmer. Our success will not be overnight. Only after years of learning and unique experience will we have something valuable to offer the world.

Oh sure, it’ll have value before that time, but not as much. The price of the tree is determined by height.

And it’ll have different value for different people. You may be ‘the one’ for someone, but not for someone else.

The great thing about your value is that when someone uses it, it’s not gone. It’s still growing!

So sell your Christmas trees. Don’t cut them down.
