Rule for Farming (or really anything one tries to do)
Follow these rules and it will lead to success or at least help one justify not achieving success/
1. Most deadlines are completely arbitrary.
Plant tomatoes starting in May in Arkansas. Except for this one. This is pretty much a sure bet unless one wants to overcome April 13th frosts. And taxes, the tax deadline is pretty much a solid deadline. But those are the only two I can think of right now.
2. You will never get completely done. There will always be something left to do or something you've completed before will change and turn to crap and have to be redone. I believe the proliferation of machines on the farm and in other walks of life is due to humankind attempting to over come this law. We are seeking a machine that will help us get completely done with something faster so we can sit and enjoy (s) the results of our labor, or more likely, try to find something else to do.
3. If you don't do anything, nothing will get done.Sometimes, we don't know where to start, or we've invested money enough to do it all, but realize we'll fail. Not doing anything will almost surely mean you won't get there.
4. If you do something, something will get done. Just because you can't do it all doesn't mean something shouldn't be done at all.
