Never Judge a Book…

Never Judge a Book...

Snapped a picture of this plant, thriving along the side of a shopping center parking lot, among windblown trash and discarded carriages.

Consider the life-cycle of this plant; how it’s grown tall and attractive enough to catch my eye, in spite of poor soil and lack of attention.

This humble plant got me thinking about all the people I’ve worked with over the years and how often, it was those individuals who had a more hardscrabble beginning, who proved to be the most loyal and hardworking.

It’s an important lesson when looking for talented people to join your firm, not to judge an applicant solely by their address or ivy league credentials.

Because to be raised with limitless support and education will always be advantageous, one should never discount the strength of character and resilience it takes to thrive in poor soil.
