No not a real tree – a proverbial tree.
In the chance you haven’t heard this saying, it happens to be one of my favorites. It’s an old Chinese proverb. (Is there such a thing as a new Chinese proverb?)
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
If you are human, especially one near the age of 50, you tend to think of things you didn’t do when you were younger.
Well, do it or start it today. Don’t come to that same conclusion again months or years from now.
On the flip side, you can also do what Arianna Huffington taught me and that “you can actually complete a project by dropping it.”
Your choice. But make a choice.
