Though times are dark, you must continue on.
Standstill equals regression.
Progress begins with planting seeds.
You won’t see it at first, but one seed contains
the potential of 10,000 forests.
So use this time to plant seeds. Contact people.
Cement relationships. Widen your connections.
This morning I sent an email thanking someone
for a suggestion he gave me last year that resulted
in a speaking job. He replied immediately,
thrilled to have been helpful.
To my surprise, he then offered me work
(helping his organization with fundraising.)
No one knows how all of this will turn out.
Certainly, the world is changing.
Still, seeds will grow.
If you have a good product, or a good cause – something
that people would benefit from and they should invest in –
don’t abandon it. Don’t become hopelessly stuck.
No matter what is happening on the outside,
(like a seed) you have enormous hidden potential.
Happy New Year! If you have thoughts about this,
please comment. – Shar McBee
