There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.
- Proverbs 30:24-28
So, what can we learn about work from these wise little things?
- Plan ahead, like the ants who store up food during the summer months.
- Build on a solid foundation, and create a safety net for yourself, like the conies.
- Be organized and self-motivated, like the locusts (This is really important if you're self-employed and don't have a "boss" telling you what to do!).
- Aim high and work hard, like the spiders.
Hmm... good advice. Smart little creatures, aren't they?
And now, it's time for me to get back to work! ;o)
