If the opposite of pro is con, what is the opposite of progress? Better yet what is the opposite of procrastination? Farming! If you farm, you don’t procrastinate.
Think for just a minute… The bible mentions farming several times if you sow you will reap. Why would farming be so important? Well, people farm to this day, in fact, we practice farming all the time. Not like you might think but stick with me.
What is the main principle of farming? You do something today, work tomorrow, then months later you finally get the reward.
You are reading my farm. I write every day. You come read it. In the beginning, I didn’t see much traction. Eventually, I will be one of the most famous bloggers there is. Because I planted the seeds, watered, and grew. I am certain my time as a public speaker will be the same way. I will eventually reach thousands of people on a weekly basis. (Remember when I write something it typically comes true)
Am I trying to say you should start a blog? Maybe. If that is what you want to do. However every day you spend time farming, and I am not talking about farmville. Raising your children… Marriage… Working out… These are all examples of things that you put in a ton of work today and then get the reward much later.
Even in your religion, you should farm. Many people try to make a big impact in someone’s life too fast. There is an old saying: Witness Every day! Use words only if necessary. If people see that you live an extraordinary life they will come to you to change their extra-ordinary life.
The way you farm is simple. Plant the seeds today. Water the crops tomorrow. Reap the benefits when the season changes.
