Harvesting the crop


Harvesting the crop today is an activity tied to our efforts of yesterday.” #bgdtcoaching.

We all work for something. It could be money, it could be love or even simply the desire to do our duty. Whatever the motivation, harvesting the crop today is an activity tied to our efforts of yesterday.

The output may vary according to the moment, similar to a seasonal yield. Yet a return in any case can render work satisfying beyond the mere pleasure obtained from undertaking something, albeit hopefully interesting and enjoyable.

The saying “In order to receive, first give” applies also to the workplace if we choose to follow such a thinking. People connect and do business with people first and foremost, regardless of the products or services in question. Harvesting the crop from good intentions is part of this.

A collaborative approach to work and life could be brought about when harvesting the crop with openness, generosity and kindness towards one another. On the other hand, when coming across folk who operate with ‘dollar signs’ in their eyes, I imagine chances to get out of their way are quickly taken.
