Interested in some bird advice for President Trump and his critics?
Critics of President Trump’s first one hundred days in office need to read about birds from a biologist who wrote a book. This post is an analogy of birds, not tweets, to the first 100 days of President Trump.
Frankly, no one in history has ever been successful in fixing all the problems in the world since the beginning of time and recorded history, let alone 100 days.
Anyone criticizing him is just “pulling his chain” because they either do not agree or like him or his agenda, even though he won the election because voters agree with his agenda.
Why a Bird Analogy?
Because of three reasons.
The first is King Solomon, renowned in ancient times as the wisest man in the world. thought he could solve all the problems in the world and came to the conclusion no one can, yet many that follow him will try and do the same. For what will the man do who is to come after the King? What men have already done. (Ecclesiastes 2:12)
The second is the advice King Solomon gave that we should consider the ways of the creatures on earth to seek wisdom and inspiration in our lives. For example to work hard as the ant. “Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise” (Proverb 6:6)
The third is because of the advice a wise father gave to his kids how to approach a school task about birds that seemed overwhelming to them. The child grew up to write a book about his advice to take on one task at a time. Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.
What Bird Advice Analogy?
- “Almost all good writing begins with terrible first efforts. You need to start somewhere. Start by getting something—anything—down on paper. A friend of mine says that the first draft is the down draft—you just get it down. The second draft is the up draft—you fix it up.”
In My Opinion
President Trump is working hard like an ant to fulfill his campaign promises. His first efforts may not have been perfect in the views of his distractors. He may never accomplish everything at first or even a percentage of his campaign promises. Anyone who reads or follows all the problems going on in the USA and the world today will agree that dealing with all the problems is indeed an overwhelming task.
However, because our problems are indeed overwhelming, we should not give up trying to make our world a little bit better, one step at a time, or one bird at a time. King Solomon wrote this inspiration on what to do in our lives when faced with seemingly overwhelming tasks or problems.
Sow your seed in the morning,
and at evening let your hands not be idle,
for you do not know which will succeed,
whether this or that,
or whether both will do equally well. (Ecclesiastes 11:6)
What problems (birds) do you want President Trump to focus on “one bird at a time. Send him a “tweet” and tell him.
My choice is to bring manufacturing plants back to the USA so workers can earn livable wage jobs again and pay taxes instead of being on the public dole. It will take years to build plants, obtain equipment, and train workers to produce widgets.
