Plant More Grass
When I was young, I did a lot of work.
I did a lot of side jobs. I worked my way through school, through college. I didn’t have any other money to rely on.
So I had to work to get the money that I was spending in my everyday life, and also what I needed to live and to go to school.
Part of my work was to do yard work.
I did yard work and I pulled weeds. I trimmed brush. I planted. I did all kinds of things.
And in my young mind, I was working hard but I didn’t realize that sometimes working hard isn’t the best thing to do… you got to work smart.
And there was one client that I had. One neighbor. Where their lawn was just beautiful and pulling weeds there was easy. And then there was another neighbor who had a bunch of brown patches of dirt. Weeds grew there like crazy.
And in my young mind, I realized that the reason the weeds weren’t growing in the great lawn, was because the lawn was
crowding them out.
And that became a life lesson.
Sometimes, you’ve got to stop pulling weeds and simply plant more grass.
