We all know people who are highly focused on being attentive and obliging. It makes them feeling comfortable and useful in life. They try to take away all the possible obstacles on their (and your) way, so everyone is able to march forwards smoothly. But sometimes they are showing too much considerations for others. They forget others can take advantage of them and they need to be careful not losing themselves in a growing world of needy elements around them.
Treewise; ‘The attentive one’ supposes his destiny in the production forest is being chopped into a dozen of table tops. His habit of being prepared for everything in the future, has confined his own growth.
Maybe too early in his life.
