Current Events and Opportunities

While traveling, I came upon a great article by Warren Buffet. He was speaking to what is called the law of gestation: The amount of time required from seed to full-blown whatever the seed is. If there is an amount of time required for an acorn to become a mighty oak tree, there is an amount of time required for each thing.
He said honoring that there is an amount of time required is one of the best things. Most people start something and give up on the idea or project before it comes to fruition. They pull up the roots looking for the fruit when the seeds haven’t been given time to grow into a fruit tree.
So if you’ve planted some seeds (ideas or projects), give it some time. Keep nurturing them. Water those ideas. Dig deep in the soul of becoming and let your ideas become results.
