When we plant a seed, we have to nurture it for it to grow. And over time, with some luck, you get a tree. A tree that you may never get to enjoy. That to me is against so much of our natural instincts. To do something in the long run that has nothing to do with me.
There’s nothing more satisfying in my opinion. Doing something that goes unnoticed by the masses but perhaps changes the course for the few who choose to pay attention to what is happening.
