Entering a new decade pushes us toward envisioning what the future will bring. We set targets, make strategic plans, and talk about what where we want to be in 2-3- and 5 years.

But maybe, by looking too far ahead, we are not creating the best use of what is around us.

Maybe by looking too far out, I miss the treasure that lies at my feet. In fact, an early morning run prompted me to mist on what I need to build now, today, in this place and who is here, now, today to help me.

Consider the lesson of my bush sunflowers.
