There is wisdom in nature. You may have heard that bamboos also teach us a lesson on patience. Trees in general, lend a wonderful and eloquent metaphor for life. They generally get stronger through opposition, they do not fight agains natural changes, they give fruit, shelter, shade, they are gracious.
The bamboo in particular, takes years to spread its roots underground, before you even see anything sprout out. And when it comes out, it grows at a rapid pace.
“Water the bamboo” is a metaphor for team and individual success. It’s a concept based on the type of bamboo that grows like no other plant in the world: If you water giant timber bamboo in the first year, nothing happens. If you water the second year, nothing happens. If you water the third year, nothing happens. But when you water the bamboo the fourth year, it will rocket up an astonishing 90 feet in only 60 days.
