You probably know I grew up on a farm. On a farm, farmers use wire. Lots of it. They use it to build fences and gates, to fix machinery and make kids toys.
There’s nothing that can’t be done with pliers and some Number 8 wire.
That’s why I’m writing this post on my iPad. Both my MacBooks, the ones I use to write my blog posts, are doing their best to die.
This iPad has turned into a piece of Number 8.
That’s the way commitment works. We take away the alternatives and the easy route. We find a way through difficulties. We create solutions. We keep moving forward.
But we never give up. Never.
Tomorrow, when your fence breaks, reach for a different tool, reach for your Number 8. Rather than being frustrated and annoyed and upset that something’s not working, go find something that is and use it and make it work for you.
Stay the course, stay committed. It’s the farmer’s way.
