We meet.

We meet a lot.

Collaboration is as slow as it needs to be, and as fast as it needs to be at the same time. There’s no sense in comparing it to a split-second decision. In fact, it is the exact opposite of such. It fights against the decisions of split seconds, letting a decision exist without any label of time.

But what about the impacts of those decisions? Aren’t they time-sensitive? Don’t we need to improve and sustain our forests at the speed of light? 

Here is our answer: the decision to act is one that must be made without delay, but the action itself will be ill-conceived, short-sighted, and utterly flawed if it is made too quickly, without the right people, and without the right information. We did not make a mess at the speed of light, nor can we clean it up any faster. But, we can sure DECIDE to begin our positive interaction with the forest as fast as any euphemism allows, splitting the very atoms of already-split seconds.
