The Law of Gestation

The Law of Gestation

The thing I notice the most about leadership is that people are too willing to give up ontheir dream.

I  came upon a great article by Warren Buffet.  He was speaking to what is called the “Law of Gestation;” the amount of time required from seed to full growth.  There is a certain amount of time required for an acorn to become a mighty oak tree; there is an amount of time required for each thing.

 He said honoring that there is an amount of time required is one of the best things.  Most people start something and give up on the idea or project before it comes to fruition.  They pull up the roots looking for the fruit when the seeds hadn’t even been given time to grow into a fruit tree.

If you’ve planted some seeds of ideas or projects, give it some time.  Keep nurturing.  Water those ideas.  Dig deep in the soul of becoming and let your ideas become results. 

 Warren Buffet said that some things, no matter how great the talent or effort –some things just take time.  “You can’t produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant.”  It made me laugh.  I hope it does you, too.
