Those of you who know about Chinese Bamboo and those of you who don’t know about it may think-what is there for me to tell you all about a Bamboo.Bamboo is after all a Bamboo only.

NO friends! If you think that way,there are surprises for you for sure. There is a very special and interesting story about Chinese Bamboo and life changing lessons to be learnt from this unique bamboo.

Chinese bamboo is a tree that grows really tall-to  a height of over 80 feet.Wow! so high! It takes around 5 years and 3 months to grow to its full height.But there is something more interesting thing about it.You see nothing for the first 5 years after you plant the seed.Except perhaps a little shoot springing out of the bulb and struggling to make a squiggle.

And then,in the next 90 days,it shoots up to a towering 80 feet.Can you believe it?  For the first sixty months all the growth is invisible below the surface. And in next three months-yes,merely  ninety days-it literally takes off and become as tall as the eight story building.

We all need to pause and take action from the chinese bamboo.Nothing of substance happens in haste.Having sown the seed and having initiated something,when we don’t see the results,we get impatient.But patience has its rewards.

As leaders and bosses,we become impatient for should ask yourself whether your leadership style encourages or even allows-the growth of the chinese bamboo.Or are you creating an organization of stunted,but quickly visible trees,so  the next time you feel frustrated by lack of results and want to give up,don’t.Think of the chinese bamboo.

When you feel the world is unjust and is refusing to recognize your hard work and commitment,don’t get disheartened.Five years of subterranean activity will almost always be followed by three months of meteoric rise.And yes,when you finally achieve success,be prepared for people to say: ‘oh,he is so lucky.He has become an overnight success!’

Alas! If only they knew about the CHINESE BAMBOO!


Patience is eventually rewarded.Nothing of substance happens in haste.
