MVP: Avoid distractions and focus on what is important.
Two years ago, I had a vision for a greenhouse. I was inspired by a friend who gave me a bunch of large tempered glass panels and I set about designing something that was way too complicated.
In May 2021 I dismantled my old greenhouse, which was some 5mil plastic wrapped around scrap wood, and set about building my new greenhouse.
The project was beset with problems, and I did not have an operational greenhouse until June this year, way too late to help with the 2022 growing season.
Although my greenhouse now is serviceable (see photo evidence) there are lots of upgrades I have planned.
The challenge for me is to focus on what is most important. The greenhouse is only one part of the garden, and if I don’t get rid of the young trees growing nearby, any upgrades will be useless as the greenhouse will be in constant shadow.
I suffer from shiny object syndrome. I like to chase bright things, and they distract me from what is most important.
Today’s intention: Check in with yourself. What are you chasing today? Are you chasing what is most important? Not urgent, but important.
