The ‘Mighty oaks’ quote is a 14th Century old English proverb that has so much significance to many aspects of our everyday lives.
It inspires us never to give up, and to always remember that great things do indeed come from small beginnings.
Of course, we know that an oak tree is not ‘mighty’ overnight. It will have gone through many stages of growth, and it will have had many descriptions accredited to it during its lifetime – first the acorn, then a small shoot, followed by a sapling, a small tree, a large tree, and even a tall tree. All these stages are necessary before the tree is credited with the grand title of being ‘mighty’.
One thing is certain – the greatest of all the mighty oak trees have once been little acorns.
To enable this great process, the tree will have required necessary ingredients to enable this growth and development – such as sunshine, rain and good nutrients etc.
So now, let us examine our businesses, or even our ambitions. We may still be an acorn ready to shoot, we may be a sapling, or even an established tree. Nevertheless, we remain in need of the right growth elements to continue healthy growth. For a business, the critical elements are shown below: –
- Good products and/or service
- Good staff
- Good management
- Good marketing
Whatever stage we are at, we always need to remind ourselves, ‘never give up, just keep feeding the tree’.
