Whiteboard Quote of the Day: “Trees that are slow to grow, bear the best fruit”


In the world we live in today, almost everything is built on speed.  We have been called the “microwave” society or generation, because we want everything to be done right now. We want results immediately.  We want things done yesterday!

If you are not careful, you can get caught up in this mentality and it can lead to frustration. Frustration when we don’t meet goals in the time we planned for.  Frustration when our peers achieve things sooner than we do.  Frustration when our kids understand lessons later rather than sooner.

“Trees that are slow to grow, bear the best fruit.” – Moliere

I encourage you today to slow down.  Go through the process.  Continue on your journey even if it is the scenic route.  The time you reach your destination is not the most important thing.  The journey, the learning experience, and your growth are most important.  Many times the slow journey will produce the best results in us.

Question:  How can you better enjoy the journey in your life today?  Please share in the comment section below.
