An old farmer who was not known for his strong work ethic had an interesting approach to life. When lightning struck an old shed and it burned to the ground, he reasoned that this had saved him the trouble of tearing it down. Rain from the same storm washed the dust off his car, sparing him from that chore also. When someone asked him what he was going to do next, the farmer replied, “I am waiting for an earthquake to shake my potatoes out of the ground!”
I think most of us agree that we need to show a bit more initiative than that!
