It’s like everyone’s given seeds that are capable of growing into the garden of their dreams, but no one’s been told they even have them. Then, when they see their neighbor’s garden growing, whether it’s because their neighbor actually found their seeds or accidentally spilled them, there’s a rush to see what’s happening. In fact, whole industries are built around the buying, selling, and trading of other people’s gardens. Agents are hired, sales teams assembled, and sometimes stocks and bonds are issued. Vendors compete, lawyers are hired, and accountants are sued. There are mergers and acquisitions, buyouts and takeovers, and of course retirement funds, company picnics, and vacation days.
There are seeds that grow into private gardens. Seeds that grow into best sellers. And seeds that grow into happy families.
It’s quite a riot, and often good fun, but Kamil, would you believe that one of the biggest impediments one has to discovering their own seeds, these days, is their fascination with the gardens of others?
Kamil… we’re already selling stocks and bonds on your garden!
