“The poor long for riches, the rich long for heaven, but the wise long for a state of tranquility.”– Swami Rama
Good words; insightful.
When serial entrepreneur Tom Malloy wanted to create a haven for motorsports enthusiasts like himself, a great many people felt threatened. Nearby race courses, mostly. So they fought.
They organized a group that insisted that race cars kill poppies. Of course, if race cars drive over poppies, they don’t do anything for the gentle flowers’ long-term health.
The California Poppy Reserve was many miles from the planned operations. There was no way you would hear the cars from the distance, especially given the facility was nestled in a valley. But that didn’t get people up in arms.
So in the end, a fun business idea for the high desert of California had to be abandoned. Tom sought tranquility rather than fight.
And a solar power generating company became interested in the lands and Tom did quite well.
Tom sought tranquility in dealing with his digital marketing, also. Which is why he employed us to create a website. It was forthcoming with information for detractors and proponents alike.
By seeking tranquility in business rather than dealing with the ridiculousness, Malloy came out on top.
