The wise lessons from Baobab

Kruf, J.P. (2003). Baobab Tree. Damaraland, Namibia.

Being smart is best related to surviving, being the fittest. It comes with true skills and a lot of the right DNA or talent, or agility, or power to change. Is it just luck that you can survive? So much depends on the state of the environment, and of yourself. Following the rules of every natural ecosystem.

This tree is here. It is the only one in the vast and stretched desert landscape of Damaraland, Namibia. Why? Not that much water available. The Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata L.) knows how to tackle this. It has learned in the millions of years to store the right amount of water, gathered on the right moments and in the right quantities to survive. Well here it is. The resilient tree. Resilient to draught. When there is not that much of water, it is wise to do so, store it in yourself. Very wise. In fact the only way.

What about you in this world? Are you smart, strong, fit or resilient? Learn these lessons. Amend your properties to that what the environment demands from you, not the other way around. It is about deep lessons from Darwin. Reread him. Just fit. Learn from the Baobab. Take your time, of course, but prepare yourself as soon as possible. It is the lessons of all life on earth. The world is changing. Be the fittest! Store what you need to be resilient.
