Do you have a seed of an idea for your business, but question your ability to plant it? Or have you planted the seed, but now get frustrated because your business isn’t growing fast enough?
This is why the metaphor of acorns and oak trees is so popular in business. It allows us to imagine the possibility of an idea or concept transforming into a fully thriving business and a lasting legacy. It symbolizes patience (for growth) and determination (for weathering the storms). As we hold the ‘acorn’ of an idea in the palm of our hand, we can imagine what our ‘mighty oak’ of a business will look like in the future.
It takes years for an acorn to transform into an oak, so let’s cut ourselves some slack in business. Pick up your acorn and just get started.
