    Trees Development as Metaphors for Business Development

It is amazing that even what makes a tree definition is still undecided; in...

    #45 Yes, and I fully agree with your comment @Deb Lange. YOur writing "I imagine that the more we see ourselves as nature, and learn from nature herself, the better our strategies will be for how to live together in this beautiful world" is powerfully true and is in full accordance with the examples I am covering in my next buzz.

    Nature is so good at adapting to the environment. Humans have worked hard at making things from nature as if we are not nature. Now that the tide is turning and we are returning to a sense that we are nature, I imagine that nature will provide both metaphors and real strategies to mimic and adapt ourselves. (biomimicry) I imagine that the more we see ourselves as nature, and learn from nature herself, the better our strategies will be for how to live together in this beautiful world.

    #41 Dear sister @Irene Hackett- yes, I agree with you " And as trees must adapt to the changes around them, adaptation to a changing market in the business world is critical". This is part of how trees develop and should also be part of how a business grows. Without adaptation growth shall be ill-sided. I hope my next buzz will show this more clearly.

    A terrific analogy dear Ali. Nature and human life are so connected! A what a great teacher nature is! From the worker bees to the army ants, from the formation flying of migratory birds to the schools of fish swimming in unison...endless are the lessons and the chapters. The Tree as a Teacher is a great chapter indeed! Thank you for sharing.

    Dear brother @Ali Anani, you are the master in the discussion of trees and their likeness to human nature, to mankind. And now - to business development, how creative! In my mind business development is a fancy word for sales. More complex perhaps than an individual sales position, business development grows business value to the customer base and to the industry at large. And as trees must adapt to the changes around them, adaptation to a changing market in the business world is critical - Netflix is a good example of adaptation to market change. I like your analogy regarding environment: "Trees develop using different strategies as dictated by their environment." A Company's environment will dictate whether it's development will progress and expand or be squelched. Looking forward to your next buzz, as always :-)

    I like how you think Lisa. It is important to allow yourself to feel what you feel and express it as it is for you. People are drawn together based on common ground and not on emotional obligation to do so. With an open heart and mind to explore further what that common ground is whether spoken or unspoken. Thank you.

    #67 @Irene Hackett These styled discussions always make me think of musical chairs. Everyone is focused on the music and the empty chair that is closest to them. Our society, through systems, have initiated and nearly perfected, the game of musical chairs. We focus on the media or social alignment, music and our ability to seek success and joy, the chair.

    Neither of these goals are bad, it's the game. I don't play within that circus. I don't require the music or reflection of media to find my peace and joy. I will have to say, a lounge chair and a umbrella drink is required to watch the game from a distance:)

    "Oneness" i don't believe is the same as interdependence. This may be splitting hairs, but interdependence requires me to understand your journey and how we might benefit from each other. Oneness means that i need to not only share the journey but also belief systems. In this you and i can't be one. This journey of oneness is reserved for our spouses. I can share a portion of others journeys and each can benefit for the time.

    Our answer for interdependence is a homogenized viewpoint that i feel is ground zero for some of our cultural issues. We are requesting oneness in our belief systems when this is next to impossible. We have all refined our systems from our perspectives and the journey has showed us wisdom. In this we are each unique, not one. We can all share a portion of a journey over time but we can't all live in a journey that has been homogenized.

    #68 True Irene. We all have our little "stories" and we are all challenged in some way or the other all the time! We can transfer strength, like knowledge, to the person next...just by standing beside a weaker person! It is just that most folks are afraid of lowering the guard in fear of exposing vulnerabilities.

We are all challenged in some way or other, is it not so? A matter of degree and perception is the only difference. It may be that when the 'strong' considers the 'weak', it is the strong who is transformed. I appreciate your feedback Praveen, it is always a pleasure to hear from you!

    #62 @Harvey Lloyd. I agree whole-heartedly with your case for interdependence. The 'new age' talk about 'oneness' would appear to be something of importance in moving forward - even though aligning oneself with a particular thought group is not required - but awareness is. You have touched on the key message, "It will take individuals that stop listening to the chatter of what success is and realize that the person next to you is who needs to be successful. Building each other is the fractal answer to the time equation."

It is their duty - not to gloat about their strength and build a following of loyalists - but use it to raise the others to higher strength and productivity. Transform the weak into the strong...and nothing can be more heartbreaking than seeing a strong man falter and fall. Not just literally. And wise are those who Rise, after the fall.

    @Irene Hackett, @Ali Anani and @Fatima Williams thank you for comments and more importantly thank you for considering a different perspective of direction. Our journey as humans is one of interdependence. When we accept this our eyes are opened to possibilities that otherwise didn't exist under dependence or independent. The transformation into interdependence cant happen until we register a strong set of core values that include the success of others.

    Without these values then we will remain either dependent on others success for our own or be the ones others depend. Ali has shown, along with your article here that nature is interdependent this why nature is our guiding light for existence. Nature doesn't have the emotions humans have (in General) so it/they don't create barriers to interdependence.

    Within interdependence we have to have faith. Or in today's language, trust. We have to believe that by serving others the value will be returned in a form that is self fulfilling and rewarding. When we transform from independent our feedback could force us to remain where we are. Courage is needed to keep moving forward. It took us a long time to behave ourselves where we are and it will take a long time to behave our way out of independence.

    #54 @Milos Djukic, If i could be so bold as to state, future society, not future leaders, will understand their true value within the scope of fractal math and leaders will become organizers of resources. The larger question is will we arrive at this conclusion through discourse or because of our need for survival? In this concept of fractals i believe that the series will be served regardless the outcome. So time is the elusive equation we all seek.

    Unfortunately we have behaved ourselves into seeing completed fractal elements where folks do not belong nor engage. IMO i sense that this is because we are being taught/shown that individually we are our own fractal within a vacuum. This vacuum could not exist if the societal fractal wasn't present. Until we see that we are all a part of the fractal math and play our role, then time will be the discussion. The fractal cant move forward without each of us participating. The illusion of individual success implies that time is moving, where in fact the fractal development for the next stage is at a stand still. Waiting for the individual to recognize their role in development.

    We all seek that great leader that will draw society/company/country together and serve the fractal math in this context. Those leaders are already present, you and me. No one person can take this responsibility. It will take individuals that stop listening to the chatter of what success is and realize that the person next to you is who needs to be successful. Building each other is the fractal answer to the time equation.

    #32 The stories that most catch our notice are the tales of extraordinary heroism, But truth be told, the majority of truly heroic effort and behavior occurs within the context of day-to-day life, and is instantiated by those who consider themselves "ordinary", but who will not accept what is for what should be. If humanity is to be saved, it will be by the "regular guys" with grit, who will do the job.

    A story well told @Pascal Derrien. It's so sad because many of the homeless people are mentally ill and from what I've heard, suffer from Schizophrenia. Yes, there are those who are homeless because they lost it all but those who choose to live in the streets through out each bitter winter, well it brings tears to my eyes. You saw it first hand and I'm glad you touched so many lives. I'm sure you touched more than you were ever aware of. Thank you for sharing, you have a kind and caring heart- it's very evident in your writing. Obviously I never knew Joey, but I echo your sentiments, RIP Joey and to all the "Joeys" who died homeless.

    #15 Dear @Fatima Williams whenever you feel lonely talk to your family back home, talk to your friends for no reason. But to enjoy loneliness go into your deep thoughts. You will find many beautiful things to remember, explore and share with us. By the way there is a possibility that on my way back from US in mid October I stop by in Dubai for 2-3 days. Would love to meet you if you happens to be there during that period. It would be good opportunity to meet Fatima Williams after spending time with Fatima Zaidi :)) I would update you with the plan when it is final.

    Silence & loneliness is golden but may be only for a certain period of time as I am currently in that phase of my life. I stay alone in Dubai with my family back home. l am no doubt enjoying it, but when it gets lonely ?
    I believe Silence & loneliness has helped me with self realisation so I'm in a Dilemma with my thoughts.

    no, loneliness, having no resemblance with gold or silver. it is the call of the hour to keep human noise or clamor away, only to concentrate or talking with one in different signals and necessarily being driven by the reflection caused by the signals, as right now i am silently enjoying your post. a symphony i enjoy cannot be translated in human speech always. this is the beauty of nature. no longer being froze as we have life and only bestowed with the boon of thinking, which is also a manner of talking. lovely post @Aadarsh Krishna. enjoyed read. thank you for sharing the post.

    #6 You are incredible my brother soul @Anees Zaidi. In fact, I am frozen in place. I received notification of your tagging me while considering glass as a metaphor for ideas and discussions. One main point is glassy materials (ideas) that are difficult to classify. Is silence a glassy idea? Is time a glassy idea? Sleep on ideas to become our masters? I am still playing with the idea, but your tagging put my mind in a glassy state.

    I would like to share with you something that resonates with the last three points in your buzz...Companionable Silence. Where you spend hours in the presence of someone whose aura doesn't disturb you at all in anyway. Could be anyone. No compulsion to make conversation. No need to touch or caress. Company that not only lets you be yourself but also acts as an ingredient to that harmony. Sometimes Silence is a conversation with the Self pregnant with suggestion, punctuated by our words! It is the sound of our sub-conscious perhaps? True silence is achieved only in deep meditation, where thoughts cease to distract or attract other thoughts! Thank you for broaching on a thought provoking subject. Silence is as unfathomable as it is deep, and becomes our master, as we sleep! Close

    #12 I simply LOVE that title @CityVP Manjit, "To Be Happier, Start Thinking More About Your Death". Impressive. I'll try to read the article later. It reminds me a very good journalist in Spain, Jesús Hermida, who said in an interview about the people who complains for the weather or the rainy days, "If you were dead, you would love to be able to enjoy a rainy day...". He was very ill, with cancer, when that interview happened and he finally died last year. And I think of him sometimes...

Then there is the extended family and the forgotten and even expelled child called "sadness" - and when all of that comes together in the flow of my own being - I reach towards finding flow with the value of living my life closer to a whole and not just in its parts. As for what others do and think, that is their business, whatever knocks your head back is your life choice I say, for this is simply my trip and I appreciate whatever trip another wishes that does not end in harm. Whose to say happiness will emerge unless we were happy. Close

    #3 Thank you @Neville Gaunt . Each one of us need coaching is my view on Coaching. Some accept it , other's don't. Whether people are ready to be coached depends on their readiness to accept that they need coaching. Once they have been coached they need to track their progress to make sure they don't fall behind. And if they do , that's when a Coach comes handy again. If they set new goals that need to be acquired then again they can approach a Coach.

    I find that most people are ready to accept coaching when you tell them that they need it and have seen employees grow in front of my eyes to reach the positions or goals they want. Thank you once again for your kind words.

    #40 Dear Fatima, where else does happiness start or end other than within ourselves. It is we who have made it a thing by trying to make it a having rather than a being. One day my mother will pass from this world and it will not be a happy day and on that day the gift of sadness will be more accessible than the gift of happiness. That I can access that within me means that it can either be a blessing (a gift) or a curse (a theft). Happiness as a curse is not at all the same thing as happiness as a blessing. Happiness is not a simple off and on switch and it is nothing without sadness, it is a flow that emerges from within, which is what makes the pursuit of happiness an endless chase of vanity. The greatest vanity of all is to explain happiness when we are happy. If we need to go look for happiness in other things or people, all we will find there are the symbols and expressions of their vanity, and not our bliss. Take the Woodkids remix [Unhappy Version) of Pharrel Williams song Happy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyBFx18E6O4 - whatever you feel, whatever it triggers, how it effects you begins with what it evokes in you. This is what Socrates meant by "Know Thyself" - so why use my language or experiences of happiness - when they are within you and yours to discover? This means your question is a rhetorical question, which means you already know the answer, but are you ready for the practice, a practice that is yours to discover.

    If I get asked if happiness is important to me, this is like asking me "which of your children do you love?", but I reply "I love all my emotions" and unless I can love all of them, how can one of them be more important? It is when we hate some or most of our emotions that we are most likely to be in a search for happiness but searching for happiness is like getting on a rocket ship and head out into the distant Universe so that we can find Earth.

To BEE 'love in action', to offer my attention, my smile, my heart to another. If not this, what then is the joy of being human?
