Around 130 millions ago, the plants that flower begin to emerge on earth. Around the same time, bees also appeared.  An interesting and mutually beneficial 'friendship' emerged between the two.  The plants provided food for the bees as means for being pollinated. Biologist call this interdependent relationship co-evolution.

We can learn something here. In our dealings in life, there are areas we can co-evolve with a strategic partner by working out a strategy with mutual benefits. It is worth remembering that life thrived on earth by networking rather than engaging in combat.
