How to have a good New Year – a farmer’s perspective



One day, a talented writer friend of mine was discussing the evolution of my business with me.  He likened it to the corn farmer he met from Iowa who told him,

“You can do anything in farming twice, except plant.”


And when my friend asked this Iowan “what makes a master farmer?” He pointed to his Shed – and said – “It’s all about what happens in there on the coldest days in winter.

“If I get that right, the next year will be a good one.”

What do you have going on in your shed in the “coldest day in winter”?  There is preparation that yields us our greatest results when the time is ripe.
