Learning in the garden

I was watering and weeding in my flower garden today and what I learned was that no matter how well I weed my garden today, I will like as not have to weed it again.  Weeds always come back.  Flowers and vegetables take more work, but the weeds always come back.  What that taught me is no matter how much I want something good (flowers and vegetables) like becoming a better painter, I have to paint.  If I want a better golf swing, I need to swing the club, shoot better hoops, I need to practice free throws or 3 pointers.  What if I want to sell more widgets, then I need to make more cold calls or luke warm calls.  What if I want to pull weeds out of myself, anger, an addiction, overeating.  I have to work on that everyday.  I have to pull those weeds everyday.  So to plant the good stuff or take out the bad stuff takes daily work.  I don't have to paint a masterpiece every day, but I need to work on something or improve on something everyday.  My masterpiece will come.
