The tallest trees are a random pattern of branches. Trees grow where the sunlight is, where the wind pulls them, and a thousand other factors that cause the random pattern of branches. This is a better pattern for life than a regimented tree where the branches all grow exactly in the same fashion, or in the same straight lines. The most efficient, and most productive, form is a mess of branches. Startups are the same. There's order in the chaos, and the results are better. But there's also a general form to trees, although they come in different kinds, and the skill is in navigating within these parameters.
