Trees Don't Produce Honey

Trees Don't Produce Honey


A good start is a relaxing one. I started my buzzes on trees as metaphors for life. My first buzz is titled Are Trees Fearful? @ Aurorasa Sima responded to one idea in the buzz by expanding into a beautifully knitted buss "The Tree and Fruit Analogy - Ali Anani". The two buzzes received more than a handful of great comments.

I received a message from a "loyal" reader. He warned me of my exploitation by others. He brought to my attention that the "daughter" buzz received more attention than mine. The reader then suggested to me that I stop publishing my buzzes and instead to finish writing all of them and publish those in one go so that nobody would "steal" my fruits. The reader brought to my attention that the daughter buzz has more views, shares and comments than mine. This is not fairness; the reader ended his message like that.

As much as I disagreed with the whole focus of the message; still it kept percolating in my mind. Trees are not fearful and asked if I am fearful of illusionary fears? Fearful of my own success because if the "daughter" buzz succeeds isn't this part of my success? Why did the reader see things the way he did?

I believe trees have the answers. Trees produce flowers that the bees suck their nectar and produce honey. It is not the job of trees to produce honey. The tree has the job of providing nectar and to make it easy for bees to find where the nectar is and to find a landing place to reach the nectar without much trouble.

What is the role of the first or "mother" buzz, to keep the consistency of the reader's comment? It is to provide the nectar so that bees may find it of the quality they desire to convert it to honey. If a thinking bee does find my nectar relevant and converts the nectar to honey then that is the real success. The whole idea is to grow an idea in value. Turning nectar into honey is exactly the real monitor of success. This serves beautifully the concept of beBee as the platform for turning nectar-like ideas to honey.

Trees Don't Produce Honey

The distortion is in our standing what success is. Success isn't localized to the individual and its boundaries encompass others. This is the role of team leaders- to convert the nectar of ideas into honey-like products. It is not the role of a tree to produce honey s much as it is not the role of a bee to produce nectar. It is the role of a leader to direct the bees to where nectar is so that the bees may produce the highest quality of honey possible.

When we fail to understand the integration of tasks we fail even to appreciate the quality of honey produced. That is the problem with the message I received. It turns a lovely daughter buzz from a great quality honey to one of even toxic honey. Heating honey with negative thinking shall only lower the quality of honey and deprive it of its value. But that is my next buzz.

If I have a wish then it would be that Sara Jacobovici: What a beautiful expression of the love of the movement of life, @Ali Anani. This is an enough reward to read Deb, and I know Sara will find this very rewarding. It is sad only genuinely successful people will appreciate your other gem "I know for a fact that these successes feel hollow when we cannot share our joy and accomplishments with those who contributed along the way". It is a feast day here today and this comment is gift.

You expressed what I meant to say beautifully and thoughtfully dear Deb Lange. Who owns an idea? Nobody. How often I coin a term and Google it to find somebody else has already used it. With all honesty, I am grateful to this message because I define creativity by our ability to find ideas to turn the negative into positive. We can't make a problem more complex and then try to solve it. So, this part of your comment is spot on " We can bounce off someone's idea and integrate them with our own experience and allow new ideas to be germinated". Unfortunately, the opposite is true as well. We can denature hooney ideas by overheating them. This is my next buzz. Again, I am very grateful for writing a rich comment with lots of wisdom.

It is feast in our country today and so if I am late in responding you know why. Thank you dear Aurorasa Sima and my gift for the holiday is your comment. Yes, turning negative into positive is the test for our creativity. Negative comments or messages are an opportunity for new ideas as this buzz is.
