I killed them before midsummer on the first year. The second year was better. It brought a harvest of a single pod of chili pepper. Boy it was a harvest fest back then.
I started growing chili peppers on the balcony fifteen years ago because of my love for spicy foods. Today the harvest is always as big as I plan it to be.
The most important thing I’ve learned growing peppers is attention. Attention is the most important ingredient of a flourishing harves.
Attention is the currency of success.
If the bushes don’t get their attention in the form of sunlight, water and nourishment during the summer, the plants bear no pods in August. They wither and die.
The same principle applies to everything else in life too. What happens if you pay no attention to your bank account? Or relationships? Or body? Or business? Or craft?
Yup, you guessed right. They wither and die.
On the other hand, if you want a thing to flourish and maybe even provide rewards for you, put your focus into it.
Paying attention will pay off!
So what is it that you’ve been neglecting for way too long now? Would now be a good time to start over and pay attention?
