“Advice From a Tree” by Ilan Shamir
After we came up with name, The Madrona Group, I remembered a poem I had once read that I thought was simple, but meaningful. I looked the poem up on Google and knew that this poem signified what we wanted our business model to be.
We reference the shorter version… but just love the full version that you can read below.
I think we can all learn alot from a tree.
Complete Advice From A Tree Story
Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter
Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night.
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Earth, fresh air, light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Remember your roots
Enjoy the view!

We found a poem that kind of
signifies what we stand for in business
and kind of what we hope for The Madrona
Group to be. It goes like this; stand
tall and proud, sink your roots into the
earth, be content with your natural
beauty, go out on the limb, drink plenty
of water, remember your roots, and enjoy
