I love the analogy that in our work and our lives we are planting seeds. Whether its recommending a book to a friend, smiling at someone in the street or having a sales conversation, we are planting ‘idea seeds’.
Some may react straight away. The friend is inspired, the person smiles back & we gain a new client.
Others are more like bulbs, they take a while and eventually, perhaps when we have almost forgotten they were there, they spring up and bloom.
