Wisdom is knowing the next right action.
We pace around. Small step after another. Line after line of mundanity. Summoning the courage to pounce. If we ask a question we will get the answer. Weak questions yield weak answers.
Ask Questions. Brave questions. And really want to know the answers.
What are some questions you’re too afraid to ask?
Then you act with patience. You’ve planted a seed, fruit is inevitable. In the meantime plant some more. And water. And tend. Connect in your heart the sowing and the reaping. Taste the fruit in your mind even as your hands are covered in dirt.
What fruit are you believing your labor will yield?
This is my simplistic note based on a scientific concept. Something about momentum. I think there’s an equation. If you push a rock it moves, and when you stop pushing it stops. Something like that. It’s a science thing, I saw it on Instagram. On a reel, of a podcast. They say it applies to everything.
Have a great week! I’m enjoying making the newsletter in this new Thursday format. I still write about illustration sometimes in the illustration blog though I don’t send that out via email anymore, sometimes I link to them in Sunday’s Newsletter.
So much about gardening applies to life in general. The fruits that grow depend on the seeds you plant. You have to mind your garden, otherwise weeds will grow. We must labor and wait.
I’ve always loved Stephen Covey’s line, “No fruits without the roots.”
