We have some friends with a massive avocado tree that supplies them with more avocados then they can eat every year.
I love avocados. I want that tree.
What I rarely think about is what it took to get that tree.
A seed. A nursery. Water. Fertilizer. Energy from the sun. Dirt.
Patience. More energy. More time. More investment. More resources. Years and years.
And eventually someone says...
What an amazing community.
What an amazing company.
What an amazing marriage.
What an amazing job.
What an amazing person.
It's the most simplest of metaphors and the universe is always reminding us, but we forget it constantly.
