Thought for the Week

“Like every book I never wrote, it is by far the best book I have ever written.” ~G.K. Chesterton

In nature,99% of seeds never germinate, and of those, owing to poor conditions, less than 1% survive. That means only about 1 in 10,000 seeds actually becomes a living plant, of which roughly 1 in 10 truly thrives. Result? About 1 out of every 100,000 seeds actually fulfills its purpose.

Ideas are the same. Only a tiny percentage of ideas are ever actually planted, watered, pruned, and patiently cared for long enough to bear a bumper crop of fruit.

That means less than 1 out of 100,000 of the world’s greatest masterpieces, scientific breakthroughs, and revolutionary inventions has ever seen the light of day. Will yours be that 1 in 100,000? Remember, ideas are only seeds.

Plant the seed.
