Tending to Your Garding

Recommended Posts

What do you think about when the words forest and jungle are mentioned? Did the word wild come to mind? In jungles and forests, vegetation grow wildly and if you find yourself in one you're going to notice that there are edible fruits and vegetables in the jungles or forests; however, they are scattered everywhere and you're not really sure where or when you'll be able to eat. In the wild, nature decides and you're just trying to survive. It's sort of like most people's trading/investing. Actually, it's sort of like most people's lives.


In the forests and jungles, your survival will depend on skills and luck. The area is very unforgiving and many will perish—but, when you take the time grow a garden, life becomes easier because in the garden, everything is beautiful and deliberate, In the garden you decide exactly what trees and shrubs you want and put them exactly where you want them. Even the soil quality, temperature compatibility, and last but not the least, even watering the garden is deliberate. It is hard work initially and some plants may die due to your gardening inexperience but it's okay because it's part of the process!


To succeed—to survive, one must become deliberate in every aspect like how you manage your time. Are you maximizing your 24 hours or are you wasting some of it by watching other people on television fulfill or live their dreams? Perhaps you're wasting too much time bashing a market veteran on Stocktwits or Twitter because he/she did not agree with your investment thesis? If you truly want success, put every resource you have into it. Be deliberate! Turn off your television, put down your game boy, skip the night out with the boys—you don't want weeds and parasites in your garden, do you? Always ask yourself, how is what I am doing contributing to the growth of my success garden?

Incredible similarity to the statements made by the "dumber than wood" Chauncey Gardiner in "Being There" A favorite movie of mine from the 70's, starring Peter Sellers.
