Chinese Bamboo

I'm listening to Aleph - Paulo Coelho on CD from the library - a wonderful way to make the driving fun, enjoyable and useful. It's great on many fronts and I'm sure they'll be more nuggets but today the nuggets is all about Chinese bamboo.

Paulo says he read a throwaway article about Chinese bamboo taking 5 years to establish it's roots with no apparent growth or activity and then boom it storms ahead making huge changes growing up to 25 metres in the next can't remember months or years. Wonderful metaphor for introverts and the idea of mastery.
