Cutting the lawn is easy, anyone can do it. Just start the lawnmower and follow the lines. The problem with the lawn cutter is that his art is short lived – after a few weeks it’s as if the lawn cutter never existed.
Gardening on the other hand has a different touch. It’s work from the heart. Work that takes nurturing in the fine details. Work that gives value. The beauty of the gardener is that his art – if done well – may live on for many lifetimes.
Most people are looking for the easier way out always bouncing from tactic to tactic.
When instead they should be focused on doing work that matters, work from the heart.
Also, as Austin Kleon has pointed out – don’t forget to show your work too.
