Are you a Gardener and an Artist?

gardener and artist

This weekend my son has tough decisions to make. He directly seeded carrots in the vegetable garden. One row is overloaded with carrots. It appears that all seeds have germinated. The tough choice now is, which ones remain. He needs to thin them, otherwise the carrots will not mature fully.

Idea creation is a bit like gardening. You plant a lot of seeds, some germinate, while others do not. The ones that do we water, feed, and nourish. Again, some do not make it. Others we select to pot up or plant out as the chosen few.

Ideas are easy to generate. Thinning them out, especially when there are many good ones is an art form. Often, leaders need to be artists, but everyday we need to be gardeners.
