Today is Lauren Olamina’s 5th birthday! To honor her I am focusing on preparation (a.k.a. sowing seeds).
I prepare through:

- honoring the teaching that has come before
- finishing things I said I would do
- writing out my goals and making them visible

You have a million and one links provided for you. Now go learn.
