“Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.”
Overheard in the milking barn
I confess, I’ve waited too long to mention this snippet of wisdom from the old farmer.
Not that I had any doubts about it, I think it’s rare, insightful, obvious, elusively common-sensical….
I think I thought I was waiting for “the right time” to apply it to some current event or issue of public policy or debate on stuff that matters.
Every time I say it out loud, it feels right.
So, now’s the right time.
What fences are you building these days?
