So Easter is coming up. Naturally we think about dying Easter Eggs.
Yesterday I posted somewhere else the question if you’re dying eggs, how many of you will use naturally dying items from your pantry like blueberries, beets, and tumeric?
TODAY I’m thinking about business and well Easter Eggs and Easter Baskets transformed into this thought:
“Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Basket”
“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” goes back to the days when people used to go out to the hen house and gather the eggs that the chickens had laid. The idea was that if you put all your eggs in one basket and then drop the basket, or the bottom drops out, you lose all the eggs and all your work, and the work of the chickens will have been in vain. But if you put your eggs into more than one basket, then if you drop one basket you still another basket with some eggs left in it.
This cliché is used in life to remind us that that we need to have more than one plan, that we need to have contingency plans (plan B) just in case plan A fails. Because if you have only one plan and it fails, then you are left with egg on your face and nowhere to go.
Consider your planning and growth in your life. Consider what means success for you and what security means to you.
When thinking about what you offer the world around you, whether professional or from you personally, what does it mean to you to have stability, security, and sustainability? How are you building these qualities in your life so you aren’t relying on only one thing primarily for all of those aspects?
