“Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.” (NIV)
It turns out, I love chapter 11 of Ecclesiastes. Out of a couple of lessons, there were 2 that stood out for me professionally:
1. If I want to anticipate till the time is right, nothing will ever happen.
I can wait for the perfect timing, but it might never come. The wind will blow its own way, I will never know its path.
So it requires me to dive in. To jump.
It challenges my fears.
It asks me to be brave.
What would I do if I was braver?
If I would trust more in the Lord?
2. Move with a strategy.
Verse 2 talks about investing in 8, yes 8, ventures as we do not know what disaster may come upon the land. Even though this certainly applies to farming, I also see the message of strategically thinking.
Don’t go in bluntly, but have a strategy for how you want to address business.
And perhaps, have a backup plan for rough times.

Honestly? I find it scary ( the kind of: let’s-just-postpone-it-scary).
But I felt comforted and inspired by this Word of God.
And I hope you do too. Whatever you may go through.
