"The speed of concentration is slow and/or stopped!" A perfectly timed New Year's episode. What do you think you are – in essence? A soul? The chemicals that make up your composition? What is it that comprises your "WHO?" It turns out, WHO we are is WHAT we do consistently. We're really just a compilation of our thought and behavior habits. Your habitual actions, behaviors, and decisions forge your CHARACTER. Thus, in order for anyone to change their RESULTS, the first thing they must do is alter their patterns of thought and behavior—their habits. The very best way to do that is to STOP!...

"Never does nature say one thing and wisdom another." Juvenal

Today's episode is inspired by a little home improvement project, as MG caps some sprinklers and removes a small amount of grass to make his patio eco/water-friendly.

The project is delayed and becomes much tougher than expected due to the appearance of multiple roots underground.

The significant difference between ROOTS and WEEDS becomes striking, particularly in the context of personal development.

Roots vs. Weeds.

First, roots grow imperceptibly slowly. It's impossible to notice their growth from one day to the next. However, return in several months or years, and it's impossible not to notice.

Roots are substantial, incredibly strong, and very difficult to extract.

Finally, roots grow underground, in silence, and out of the spotlight; roots aren't flashy.

Weeds, on the other hand, possess the exact opposite traits.

Weeds grow incredibly fast—almost "flashy" in their growth (not unlike certain personalities on Instagram). They're almost impossible not to notice, and they love to show off their growth.

Finally, weeds are weak. Weeds have little if any foundation upon which they have grown and are easily removed.

The question for the listener: Are you growing roots or weeds?

Are you trying to be flashy and show off your growth from one day to the next? Or, are you focused on slow, steady growth underground, out of the spotlight?

The question arises: How can one ensure that they're growing roots and not weeds?

A great place to begin is by identifying your personal—and, if you're a business owner, company—values.

Not coincidentally, much like a tree and its roots (values), over the years, thousands of decisions will splinter off into branches guided by the values/roots that have been planted and nourished.

For enduring value and impact, ensure that you're growing roots.
