Trees get ready for the long winter through a process known as lignification (Latin lignum ‘wood’).
The woody tissues and other organs of the plant begin a highly orchestrated process whereby cell walls are strengthened.
Using energy harvested through summer, new growth is hardened to protect from frost, damp & disease.
Come the spring these buds will burst into life …but for now…the focus is consolidation.
In other words…
It’s time to harden the fuck up!
…Just remember, getting tough probably looks different to how you might imagine.
Find your network…your supporters…your cheerleaders…your paid professionals, your quiet friends….your running groups and fitness gyms…find people who are interested in growth just like you!
