A quick story about dedication, determination and stick-to-itiveness.  Things aren't always what they appear to be... 

One of thousands of varieties, the Black Bamboo seed resembles a nut with a very tough skin.  After planting, it must be watered and fertilized almost weekly.  To the frustration of the novice farmer, during the first year nothing at all seems to happen.  The second year, the seed is watered and fertilized repeatedly.  Yet again nothing appears to be happening.  The same process of feeding and watering is repeated through the third and fourth years -- still nothing "visually" happens.

Then during the fifth year, in the sixth month, the seed opens and a stalk bursts through the ground, and within a period lasting no more than six weeks the bamboo grows to a majestic height of 20 feet.

The question is when did all this growth really take place -- 20 feet in six weeks, or 20 feet in five years?  What do you think?  No random result....

We believe the growth was a result of "precise events" staged over the entire five years.

Why?  Because at any time during that interval, had fertilizing and watering not been maintained, the seed would surely have died.

An interesting story about creative problem-solving from both a professional & personal standpoint.
