“As a rule, we find what we look for;

we achieve what we get ready for.”

~ James Cash Penney

One month down, eleven to go!

Welcome to February my friends! There's so much to look forward to. While some cling to the newness of January 1st as a time for change or growth or resolutions, the impending spring season brings revival! We watch as dormancy fades and life begins to stir. Mother Nature kick's off her mukluks and whips out her favorite Crocs to get busy in the garden. I know, I know...there is 10" of snow outside, but let's face it, spring is 48 days away. Before you know it, we'll be diggin' in the dirt!

When looking to the horizon [or the calendar] we are always guaranteed change. No matter if we're getting ready to hibernate or if we're thawing with the season, we have to prepare for said change. And when we know it is coming, we do our best to get ready for it.

So let me ask you, what are you getting ready for? What's next for you? What do you see in the immediate future? How far out are you day-dreaming so when it finally arrives you're ready? I can easily get lost in my day-to-day operations and phone calls and emails. But where I find the greatest joy is talking 10 year plans! 20 year plans! Anything past 20y and I'm dreaming retirement and you've lost me. Ha! When you permit time and energy to impress grandeur and think long term, it transforms the day-to-day actions to foster the future we're all daydreaming about!

Today is your day to plant the seed, to kick off your mukluks and to start dreaming about all the work to do in your own garden! Spring is coming. Change, revival, development or whatever you want to call it is waiting for you. Are you ready?
