One of the easy excuses associated with life’s low-hanging fruit is an illusion of immediate, long-term success; that everything is complete. Realistically, low-hanging fruit is what you reach just before stepping on your life ladder. Yup, you gotta climb to reach the really good stuff.
The playing field doesn’t always begin level. Financially, some have access to more low-hanging fruit than others. But we all have our own ladder to climb and all seek our purpose, including those born with the proverbial silver spoon in their mouth. Perhaps Mommy and Daddy’s trust fund is their low-hanging fruit and will serve as a tool that helps create great things. At the end of the day though, someone can give you land, lumber, fixtures, tools, and cash, but you still have to design and build your house. (Not a house. Your house.)
There’s only so much low-hanging fruit, and, once picked, you need to continue up your ladder. Onward and upward through life’s adventures. In its literal use, picking only “low-hanging fruit” leaves the majority to overripe, to eventually fall from the tree; with only an abundance of squishy, odorous, rotten fruit remaining. Fruit wasted. Fruit meant for you to savor.
Grab the easy pickins’, then climb the ladder of your life a rung at a time. There’s too much waiting for you to discover. Adventures that you simply can’t experience just standing around doing nothing.
It’s all part of the adventure,
