Chasing Butterflies

Channeling Thoreau, the poet Mario Quintana wrote, “Don’t waste your time chasing butterflies. Mend your garden, and the butterflies will come”.

Likewise it can be said that success (of any variety) is the natural consequence of creating the right environment. It is not something you can go at directly. For example: if you become someone who is obsessed with providing delightful products and services, you will provide delightful products and services. If you provide delightful products and services, then you will delight customers. If you delight customers, they will buy more from you and your revenues go up. If your revenues go up, your stock price will go up. Focus on what you need to be, and the butterfly will come to you.
