What does ‘dendrology’ mean, you might ask? And if you already haven’t Googled/Bing’ed, or otherwise looked it up, how does it apply to success? This post will only scratch the highest of the high levels re: the connection between these two seemingly unrelated words; first, I have linked to Jon Gordon’s weekly e-letter from a couple months back and secondly, I have included Wikipedia’s write up re: the former word http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dendrology to lay the foundation for this brief post.
What I see in this ‘puzzle’ is to conclude that in order to be successful, one has to develop roots into fertile soil. The soil of one’s mind ‘garden’ is one such location to till; just as the soil of one’s environment (i.e., with whom do you associate daily?) is another. Yet a third is the soil of your inputs; just what are you putting into your mind on a daily basis? Quality rules, here. And suffice to say, to any impartial observer, TV, whether broadcast, cable, satellite, or streaming, simply has very little quality in our day and age. Personally, I unplugged my TV, using it only for the occasional DVD from my top 10 collection, and have replaced 1:1 with reading & blogging positive value into the lives of others.
To sum up: Your dendrology of success is easily changed by the nutrients in the soil of your life .
Blessings to all.
