Spring is Coming - Be Prepared!

"Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!'" — Robin Williams

I know some of my friends in the southern USA are already picking strawberries. My friends in South Africa are preparing for the Fall season. Where I live, the lands are still coated with snow, and the waterways with a thin layer of ice.

A few days ago, I was driving with one of my sons and we pulled to the side of the road to watch in wonder. A small boat was repeatedly backing up and ramming itself onto the ice. Over and over again they worked to break the layer of ice coating the river. We wondered "why?"

Soon it became clear that they were preparing the way for the rowing teams to be able to do their practice in preparation for a year of races.

It is a good time to reflect on your businesses and your projects. Are they well prepared for a season of growth? The flowers are well prepared for growth. You should be too.

The rowing teams are even ahead of the flowers this year.

Yours in the calm pursuit of excellence,
