Strawberry time at the Farm—yay! Most people picked the strawberries from the edges of the plants—the berries that were closest to the path. Since this was the first week of picking strawberries, it was fine to take the one from the edges because there were plenty to choose from.
For kicks I thought I’d also check inside the rows, dig a little deeper, and look under the leaves and toward the center of the plants. I was rewarded with several fat, ripe strawberries! WooHoo!
This got me to thinking….
How many times do we try to go for the easy solution to a problem? And how often do we run with the first idea that presents itself to us? Perhaps we can take a moment and dig a little deeper. Sometimes ideas and solutions do work right off the bat, but other times they may benefit from a little more thinking on our part. Perhaps even some turning them this way and that to see if there’s a better way to do things.
Your homework today is to give it a try and let me know how it works!
You can do it!
I’m so proud of you—you’re awesome!!
