Leave the seed

You'll never get a tree if you keep on digging up the seed to see how it's doing.

It is tempting to keep digging up a seed to see if it has germinated. But when you plant a seed you have to let it grow in its own time. You can give it the best conditions, but you can't force it to grow. Some seeds fail to germinate at all. Others take patience. Sometimes you reach the point of thinking that it will never sprout, and that is usually when the first tender shoot of green begins to show.

The trick is to keep planting and wait patiently to see what comes up.

  1. This reminds me of my children in very early classrooms. There was always 'that one guy' who would repeatedly dig up a seed to see whether it was growing or not, and always with the same result. Such a learning experience!
