Squirrels gather nuts for the winter. There’s no food in winter. The nuts are a solution to a problem.
Squirrels gather solutions. They don’t grab broken nuts and empty shells and bring them to their squirrel lair. They bring good, hearty nuts that will keep them fed.
Most people gather problems. “The website is down.” “We can’t find the shipment.” “The client can’t meet on Friday.” “The customer won’t let us do that.”
Problems don’t feed anyone. Solutions do.
What do you gather?
