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.
