I am thinking about Chauncey Gardiner, the main character in Jerzy Kosinski’s classic novel, “Being There.” He said, “As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden. … There is much to be done during the winter, I must start the seeds for the spring, I must work the soil.”
Right now I am making the most of my time by doing projects to show my skills of storytelling.
Every day I wake up and look for something I can do. One of the ways I have been keeping myself busy was doing videos to help businesses and organizations messages out about what they are doing during this pandemic.
While the actual amount of time will depend on your individual business and circumstances, for a small to medium-sized business, a strong content marketing strategy generally takes between six and nine months to yield real results. I have also heard six to eighteen months as well as a realistic time to see return on your investment.
I am reminded through scripture that throughout history you can only do what you can control, your actions. You cannot be a puppet master and control others or God. You do what you can and must realize much is out of your hands.
I am doing videos to help my neighbors in Roswell, GA. These are my seeds.
What are your seeds? Are you working your garden?
Here a few videos I have done this past week.
