I thought for a second and laughed and said..."whatever your daily ToDo List is when you wake up, you better be prepared to scrap it and start all over again and switch direction on a dime.
I think having a list is great, but the ability to adapt is most important. Sometimes things happen.... often beyond our control. Maybe the plants are cooking in the greenhouse and really need to be in the field, but then a calf gets under the wires and is roaming about.... so you turn the fan on, spray some water, take care of the calf situation and hope that what you have done is enough to buy a little more time until things go a little more in your favor.
I think as humans, it is in our nature to try to control things, we even convince ourselves we can and do control things, but in the end we only control our reactions to what happens.... and stuff does happen!
So what I have learned so far is to try to be pro-active, also to be adaptive to the stuff that inevitably happens while farming (or in life). The weather dictates your farm life, and we do not control the weather, or the calf that decides the grass is greener across the wire. But I wake up and do it again each day, and I am loving it.
To boil it down, farming is about hope. Faith in tomorrow. When the vegetable sprout breaks through the ground and you discover it the next morning your work and your faith is rewarded and your hope is fulfilled.
Work. Adapt. Hope and Faith.
That is farming
