When good ideas bear fruit

“We are a small company with a small team, so we must manage our resources wisely,” this can often be heard from start-up managers. Some, on the contrary, are ready to indulge in all grave, embracing a huge number of projects, and at the same time having many more ideas in stock. What will be more profitable? What is it worth focusing on? Let’s look at the apples.

Imagine a country house somewhere in the suburbs, a few hundred square meters of land, a shed, a greenhouse for cucumbers, a flower bed and a couple of apple trees. You need to know how to properly prune these same apple trees. If you do not pay attention, they will be subject to various diseases, their crowns will grow in ugly forms, and in this there is neither beauty nor health. It is necessary to prune a tree for many reasons. First, you ensure the pleasant appearance of the apple tree. Secondly, cutting one part, you give the chance to grow by another, absolutely new branches. As, for example, cleaning the infected areas. Thirdly, pruning apple trees helps to harvest more.

After the work on the processing of the apple is completed, you can go away and look at the result of your work as if from the outside. The tree will look weak and defenseless, having lost part of its branches. But this is only an illusion.

In almost every case, cutting off parts of something contributes to a more active development of the rest. You help your tree to flourish, leaving only the “winners”. Moreover, this kind of pruning opens up new possibilities for your apple tree. Light travels to previously inaccessible corners of the crown. Air circulates better. There are new healthy shoots. If you have truly formed the crown of your tree, you have given the apple tree a solid basis for future harvest.

Now again about business. In some companies, unusual things happened: after they reduced a number of goods and services, new ideas and opportunities immediately “sprouted” as if from nowhere. During the discussion of any issue, fresh ideas suddenly surfaced, and with them a couple more were attracted. It makes no sense to go into details now, but the fact remains that the unexpectedly proposed thought worked favorably. Of course, perhaps this newly-made fresh solution could have been formed without cuts in the old directions. It is clear that after the correct “pruning” new ideas are generated faster. After all, a healthy company is like a healthy apple tree: well developed roots (your foresight), a powerful trunk (your team) and fresh leaves (your products and services) work together to turn sunlight (income) into energy (profit).

Let’s take inspiration from nature. After all, it is best to learn the laws of prosperity from her.
