I like it, good find!
Ray Kroc, the founder of the McDonalds franchise said, "are you green and growing or ripe and rotting". Only those of us who read good books, listen to audios of and associate with people with "fruit on the tree" and live life intentionally can we be successful in life. There are always results of our thought and actions. What those "results" show us is whether we are growing or rotten. This applies to ourselves personally or to a business. We can never be stagnant because life is like going up a down escalator. If we ever quit moving we've lost the game and will never get to our goal.
