I watched a bumble bee a few days ago, flying from flower to flower in a confusing array of geraniums. And then I noticed something.
> It was only harvesting from flowers that were the same colour, and ignoring other nearby flowers.
> It was landing on the flowers in what seemed like a methodical order starting at one side of the flowerbed.
> If, perhaps by mistake, it landed on a flower it had already harvested, it hardly touched down. It must have left a marker.
It occurred to me this was quite a lesson in being focussed and methodical.
What can we learn from that bumble bee?
Think how you can apply that focus to your to-do list, to your email inbox, to your activities.
My best wishes, Paul
