If there’s anything that goes into farming — or anything that matters for that matter — it’s patience. The patience to till the land, sow the seeds, let the plants grow, and then the patience to wait for the right time to harvest. This is a key ingredient in the journey for most of us pursuing something worthwhile. Patience, patience, patience. For the higher level, the next stage. Patience even with failure. While shipping and doing what it is you’ve set out to do is crucial, there is also something to be said about waiting. So when you need to, do take your time. Let the seeds take root and enjoy the slow but steady growth of your dreams. Be patient. It’ll be worth it.
