By definition, a weed is simply something that appears where you don't want it to grow. Many a gardener has spent hour after hour removing unwanted species from flower beds and vegetable patches.
But sometimes these "volunteer" plants have a special beauty all of their own. The Fleabane Daisy is one of my favorite "weeds", with it's tiny clusters of white or light purple flowers. It is a staple in my natural landscape.
In business, there are often some opportunities that are considered inconsistent with our environment, and so they are weeded out right away. It could be a customer that might not appear ready to buy, or a new system for generating more business.
Daily blogging may be considered a "weed" to some and may be culled right out of the business plan. That's because a lot of professionals don't want to allow it sufficient time to grow and to bloom.
Like anything other business tool, it takes time for a blog to take on a life of its own. It needs to be allowed to mature. Some with less patience may take the weed-whacker and summarily remove it from their business before seeing the end result.
And they may be missing out on something very special by doing so.
As for me, I allow the Fleabane in my yard to grow and manifest its lacy beauty!
Because all that is needed to reap the benefit, is time and patience.
