How're You Gonna Keep 'Em Down on the Farm?

Part two: In the second part of this series we will look at how our selected skills relate to each worker.

The agrarian worker and time management, problem solving, strategic planning and critical thinking.
The agrarian worker doesn’t manage time; time manages the agrarian worker. Once planted, the planter does not have control over how fast the seed grows. The seed-to-harvest cycle is outside the control of the agrarian worker. However, the agrarian worker knows very much about strategic planning. Planning and harvesting the crops to ensure survival of farm and family over the non-productive winter months makes strategic planning of major importance to agrarian work. Problem solving is an important skill, but not as important as the two previously discussed skills. Critical thinking is most likely the least used by the agrarian worker.

Do you agree?

Note: Look for part three of this series that will examine how the skills discussed in this segment of the blog are related to the industrial worker.
