As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17

So who are you allowing to shape you today? Be shaped and sharpened by those that forge you into yourself, not them!

A bird in a hand is worth two in a bush!!!

“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,” also sometimes given as, “A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush,” is a proverb saying that it is better to stick with something you already have, rather than pursuing something you may never get. This proverb is a very popular warning, widely used in many English-speaking countries.
The phrase seems to have originated at some point in the 13th century, in a related Latin form: Plus valet in manibus avis unica quam dupla silvis. This can be loosely translated as, “A bird in the hand is worth more than two in the woods.”
The basic warning of “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,” is that you must take care not to get too greedy in life. If you are holding a bird in the hand, you have your meal for the evening. You can take that one bird, and be well fed. If instead you let it go to pursue two birds you’ve spied in a bush, you may catch neither, and wind up hungry for the night. This proverb points out that by passing up a sure thing for a more promising possibility, you also run the risk of losing both the sure thing and the promising possibility.
So be happy with what you got ††† en theos ††† jlawrence

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
 It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
 yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.        Provers 6:6-8

and then there is the whole teamwork and working together to solve simple problems.

Learn from the ant on your journey!,,,,nada te turbe…..jim
