The Cherry Tree


I want to share something with you that I found rather interesting. I have a cherry tree bearing fruit now. Each day it yields a few more. If I wait until they turn a deep crimson red, the flavor is amazing. If I pick them a day earlier, they’re good, but not amazing.

Since I was anxious to get some early cherries, I’ve been picking them that one day earlier. Each day… one day early. I finally realized I was short-changing myself on the ultimate goodness they could yield.

So, I decided to take a day off from picking. Good move. Now I’m getting luscious, crimson red, juicy, sweet cherries – every day. I just leave the ones that are almost ripe for the next day.


Not a bad deal for a wee bit of patience. I’ll let you draw your own conclusion as to how this applies in your world.

I learn so much by observing Nature. I’ve discovered that life and business can be…

A bowl of cherries.
