Boost Your Business: Work while the sun shines

When agriculture was the secret to survive, farmers understood the value of sunlight. You could only work while the sun was shining so a typical day was from sun up to sun down. When the sun went down, you stopped working. Whether you wanted to keep working or not, you had to stop. You were forced to stop.

Sunlight was the key to success. And you only had so much of it.

Thousands of years later, the science of agriculture hasn’t changed all that much. You still have a limited amount of sunlight in which to work. Despite modern inventions and automated technology, we have not figured out a way to improve the practicality of getting things done while there is still time to get them done. That truth is relevant in any industry at any time.

You might be tired. You might be sore from working hard every previous day for as long as you can remember. You might be depressed, angry, or too financially strapped to focus on the task ahead of you. But as long as you have sunlight, you have an opportunity to change things.

You have the possibility to do enough, fast enough to reap a harvest you could only otherwise dream about. Sunlight is all the inspiration you need to change the course of history.

That’s your opportunity today. Right now. This very moment. From dusk till dawn, each moment you live is an opportunity for you to improve your harvest. But you have to work while the sun is shining. Some days the sun won’t come out. The skies will be darkened with the clouds. Storms will fill the sky, threatening your very existence.

What you have done to this point will have to be enough to carry you through until the sun shines bright again. Which is why what you have to do has to be done today.

While the sun is still shining. Why you still have a chance to sow seeds that can make a difference in the days to come.
