“Advice From a Tree” by Ilan Shamir
After we came up with name, The Madrona Group, I remembered a poem I had once read that I thought was simple, but meaningful. I looked the poem up on Google and knew that this poem signified what we wanted our business model to be.
We reference the shorter version… but just love the full version that you can read below.
I think we can all learn alot from a tree.
Complete Advice From A Tree Story
Dear Friend, Stand Tall and Proud Sink your roots deeply into the Earth Reflect the light of a greater source Think long term Go out on a limb Remember your place among all living beings Embrace with joy the changing seasons For each yields its own abundance The Energy and Birth of Spring The Growth and Contentment of Summer The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter Feel the wind and the sun And delight in their presence Look up at the moon that shines down upon you And the mystery of the stars at night. Seek nourishment from the good things in life Simple pleasures Earth, fresh air, light Be content with your natural beauty Drink plenty of water Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes Be flexible Remember your roots Enjoy the view!
