This ancient Chinese saying embodies something that Man finds hard to work on, particularly when it comes to work life: to respect the pace of time. People experience a cycle of life, and so do industries. Life cycle models are not just a phenomenon of life sciences. However, nature never ceases to find a way to amaze us all with the unexpected. An insect whose name is given after its lifespan. An ocean quahog whose shell sees a ring growing on it for each year of life. A palm tree which takes at least 30 years to flower. It is such a great spectacle of beauty and rarity.
