An idea will not grow without action. At times, the idea – the “seed” – is planted in an environment that’s not best suited for its growth. New ideas, “radical” ideas, ideas that create the most significant changes, are the type of seed that most likely find the environment around them the harshest for their survival. Because they are new, or at least different, from most seeds placed into this environment before, they are not adapted to their natural surroundings.
This is OK.
Humans have developed a way of dealing with exactly this problem. It is simple, and at the same time, profound –
We change the environment.
Seeds can be watered. Soil can be tilled , fertilized and tended. In an ever-shifting and possibly treacherous climate, seeds have to be resilient, and the gardener has to be creative and trust his or her instincts contrary to common wisdom.
The truth is that If the seed being planted is different from what has come before,there is no “common wisdom”. Embarking on an untested path requires a special breed of gardener – an “unreasonable” gardener.
