6 BUSINESS LESSONS FROM A PUMPKIN

November 9, 2018

You can learn a lot from a pumpkin. Here are 6 business lessons from a pumpkin.

 

  1. Be well rounded. One characteristic of a pumpkin is that it is round. A benefit of being round is that all of the weight and pressure from the inside is distributed evenly. This lesson from a pumpkin is useful in business when it comes to delegating the work load. Use your team for help and support to decrease stress and overload.

  2. Be outstanding in your field. Pumpkins can be deep yellow to orange in color, which makes them stand out in their field. This lesson can used in business because no matter what industry you are in, there will always be competition. Find a way to standout and be remarkable.

  3. Have thick skin. A pumpkin's thick shell contains the most important part of the fruit, the seeds and pulp. It is also a protective layer, which keeps out the bad stuff like insects and disease. In business it is important to have a thick skin because you will  certainly have to deal with the "bad stuff" like rejection and negativity. But remember the lesson from the pumpkin, protect what's important by developing a thick skin. 

  4. Think Big. Giant pumpkins can exceed 1 ton in weight.  Think of ways to turn your small business into a big one.

  5. Keep Growing. During the growing season, the stem of the pumpkin is attached to the vine. The vine is like the umbilical cord, bringing nutrients to grow the fruit.  In business, always find a way to keep growing by staying connected to things and people that fuel growth.

  6. Carve out your own destiny.  The history of pumpkin carving actually comes from an Irish folktale. Every fall, pumpkins are creatively carved and illuminated by candles to make the perfect jack-o’-lantern.  Just like a pumpkin you can carve out the destiny of your business. With creativity, your business can be whatever you want it to be.
