When is the best time to plant a tree?

Q: When is the best time to plant a tree?

A: 20 years ago.

Q: When is the second best time to plant a tree?

A: Today. Right Now.

This week's action plan:

  1. Do you have any trees that should have been planted, but haven't? Identify three specific "trees" that you want to plant (or should have planted).
  2. Start at least one of them before the end of today. Schedule the other two for later in the week.

Whether your "tree" is at home or at the office, it won't grow unless it's planted. And the only one who can do the planting is you.
