-Chinese Proverb, quoted from productivity guru David Allen's latest newsletter. (His mantra is Getting Things Done or GTD.)
I'm a great fan of talk myself. However, in most situations, the conversation (or the monologue) has to be followed by action for any "rice" to result.
Rice, I now realize, is a symbol of fertility and prosperity.
What have you been talking about lately that you haven't put on the burner? Set some rice to simmering now.
