Interest vs. Commitment

Rick Anderson sketchDo you have an interest in changing your life?

Are you willing to make the commitment?

Do you want to be a Professional Landscape Designer? How about working for yourself and not for the man?

If you’re thinking about this or some other goal, and just continue to think about it without really acting on this “interest” . . . that’s exactly what you have an interest.

Instead of a commitment to make the real change-to make the big change . . . to go for it.

In other words

It’s like a Bacon and Eggs breakfast

The chicken has an interest in making a better breakfast . . . now the pig, he’s committed.

Go past the doubts, the fears, the anxiety . . . become that pig.

By Rick Anderson

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.

  1. I LOOVe this analogy. It’s funny though, for me, it was backwards. I was never the chicken. I had the fears and anxiety AFTER I became the bacon. Now I just bring home the BACON!

    See the bacon, be the bacon.

    Just make the commitment and do the best you can that’s all anyone can really ask of you.
