“The man who planted trees” is a short animated film from 1987, based on the story by French author Jean Giono, which won an Oscar the same year. I watched it more than once and each time I get goose bumps.
There are many books and seminars that talk about goals, focus and perseverance, but this short film explains all these things much better.
It takes 30 minutes and please do yourself a favor and watch it (if you haven’t already), because it may be the best 30 minutes you’ve spent in a while.
So take a half hour off, turn off your mobile phone and watch this amazing story without disturbance.
ps. If you want to find out more about this movie and/or the story behind it, read this article on Wikipedia.
