The olive tree requires long term vision
The olive tree can reach over 2000 years. This one is 200 years old. Before an olive tree gives olives many years have passed, often decades. The olive grower thinks long term, he has no other choice. This is something many of us are not so good at. Everything needs to be happening now. Not tomorrow. If we would think and act like the olive grower, many problems would not exist. We have no choice either, but we just don't see it.
