How “Homo Sapiens”stood the test of time?

Adopted from Simon Sinek’s book titled “Together is Better”.

Right from the caveman times till the modern day , several specific stronger than us have failed to survive the test of time yet we “homo sapiens” or humans have stood the test of time.

The biggest reason for the same is the “Neo Cortex” or rational brain of human beings which gives us the ability to think rationally and helps in problem solving.

Though strength is important , the power of social bonds that help people collaborate with each other , feel safe and vulnerable and hence fight for each other is a unique skill  that has saved us from extinction when several species around us have become extinct.

Very thought provoking insight provided in the book that I felt sharing.
