Step by Step: How Elon Musk Built His Empire (by Anna Vital)“The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.”– Peter Thiel in “Zero to One” In the bookZero to One, prominent entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shares his vision on what it takes to create an extraordinary company. Specifically, Thiel believes that instead of making incremental upgrades to an existing product or service, a company must aim to do something completely new to avoid ruthless competition.

Propagating Herbs

Image
When I get into something, I tend to get obsessive about it. I read a lot of books and websites to learn as much as I can on something I want to do. Since starting my herb garden, I've read countless websites and borrowed a bunch of books from the library to learn more. I've never really did any successful gardening before. The strawberry plant I got a few years ago died in a few weeks when birds ate all the strawberries and it didn't survive in the summer.

Now, I learned some new techniques and I think learning to propagate (breed/spread) plants is a great way to expand what you have from one plants to several to have more success.

I was kind of intrigue with the part of the lyrics where it says "parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme". I wondered what they were when I was young and learned they were herbs and I learned that herbs are used for medicine and cooking. We never actually used those herbs in Filipino food other than parsley when it's used mostly as a garnish.

Later, when I got older and learned how to cook. I learned that it's used mostly in Italian cooking. When I saw some TV show by Jamie Oliver called Jamie at Home where he shows one major ingredient per show and in some episodes, he shows his garden with potatoes, tomatoes and herbs which he uses for his cooking. It was a really interesting show and I really got interested in starting a herb garden of my own. Well, I don't have a garden, I just have a patio so I never really got anything sta…
