I learnt an interesting nature fact this week: that the roots of a redwood tree are just six to twelve feet deep. Instead of growing downward, they grow outwards, and they extend hundreds of feet laterally; in all, the roots can occupy over an acre of ground.
They secure themselves by wrapping around the roots of other trees. So, when the weather turns nasty, it’s the network of closely intertwined roots that allows the trees to stand strong.
It’s the same with humans. Relationships are crucial. It’s our interconnectedness in business, communities and nations that matters, particularly in poor weather. We need others to help us survive. And like the inter-relatedness of redwood roots, we connect with others to thrive.
