Learning from Nature - Fence Post Trees
In Central America there is a special tree that is used for fencing pasture lands - you can cut off a limb and stick it in the ground and it will grow into a new tree. Or you can lop it off in the middle and the tree will just sprout new limbs and branches as if nothing ever happened. It keeps growing. It is unfazed by the axe wielder. It may not grow as tall or strong as some of the trees in the rain forest, but it is incredibly resilient. These fence post trees are a huge inspiration and reminder to keep moving forward regardless of circumstances.
