Mighty oaks from small acorns grow.
Sometimes I get sidetracked by all of the meetings and the checklists and the hoops to jump through. I forget that I’m really in the oak tree business. Or more specifically, I’m in the oak tree business, but I work with the acorns. First and foremost, I am a teacher.
The hard part about working with acorns is that I don’t always get to see how they turn out as trees. It can be exhausting to give so much emotionally and see so little progress. And some acorns don’t want to do the work it takes to transform into mighty oaks.
But it’s worth it anyway.
