AcornFinding

You know the old saw:  "Even a blind hog finds an acorn sometimes."

True enough, but the implication is that the hog finding the acorn was pure luck.  

I think not, and here's why:

  • The hog had a need and knew it.
  • The hog had a clear objective in mind - food.
  • The hog was actually searching and working to achieve the objective - not waiting for someone else to supply it.
What makes the acorn finding somewhat accidental is that the hog did not have the full compliment of tools needed (in this case, sight) to expedite the achieving of the objective.

Now let's shift the view into the mirror... 
  • Are our needs clearly known?
  • Are our objectives precisely articulated and understood?
  • Is our tool set full and functional?
  • Are we working, really working, toward our well-defined goals?

Wimpy, wobbly, wishy-washy, and whiny are not the tools of achievement.

What excuse(s) do we really have for not achieving?
