A friend asked me how my day was going and I told him it was one of those days when I had accomplished nothing of “value”.
And then realized that simply wasn’t true. I spent the better portion of the day putting together quotes for new business and following up with prospective clients.
To which he said, “Oh, you’ve been farming – you have to plant seeds in order to have something to harvest later.”
And he’s right – everything I did today had value. And putting it in that perspective made me happy with the day.
Without the seeds I planted today, nothing grows.
Sometimes it’s as simple as a new perspective.
