Bean Farming

We can’t posses every outcome.

Consider Thoreau and what he learned from farming beans.

“These beans have results which are not harvested by me. Do they not grow for woodchucks partly?”

The same is true for writing a blog, recording a podcast, or even eating healthy foods. We can’t – and we shouldn’t – claim that every outcome was one that we had planned from the start. We can’t know who’s going to benefit from seeing our work. We can’t take every factor into account.

All that matters is that we plant the seeds of habit.
