Our Real Work

I’m still focused this month on drafting my to-be-formed company’s business plan (using a blend of Michael Porter’s value chain and Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas). Still, I want to share this poem for National Poetry Month.  It was presented at my church as an agnostic work that simultaneously yearns for God’s plan.  The pastor focused on the last line, but given that I’ve been thinking recently about how bad I was my first 41 years at thinking, it is the next to last that stands out to me:

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.

Wendell Berry
