“Seeds in a seed vault lose their vitality. The only way to protect a seed is to plant and grow that seed.”

Jack’s talk at Lifework Leadership was so great, he made the book twice.

Halfway between Norway and the North Pole sits a seed vault populated with many of the world’s oldest seeds. The idea is that if we make a mistake or have a catastrophic natural event, then we’d have original specimens to plant and restart society.

But the researchers found that many seeds lose vitality sitting in a frozen vault.

Nature is like that. Want to get stronger? You have to tear the fibers through exercise—become richer—first. Want to get richer? You have to put the money/effort out—become poorer—first.

Our gifts are like that. Hide them in a vault and they diminish. But put them to use. Stretch them so far that they tear apart and what grows out of it is a bounty beyond what a small seed could ever produce.

Can you think of a time that giving something resulted in a harvest?
