The Power of Diversity

Recently my thoughts have been wondering about challenging that which I “know” or the patterns that I “expect”.   This was driven by a conversation at my relatively new job that started with “But this is how we have always done it….”   I am a big fan of tradition as science seems to validate more and more that our grandparents had many things right.  But.. But.. I think we need to re-evaluate our patterns and our process frequently to ensure that we are optimizing, experiementing, and diversifying.  It works in nature.  It works in finance.  I can work in business.  With people, it makes everything stronger more adaptable, and more resilient.   To that end I think that Darwin would not emphasize survival of the fittest, but survival of the most diverse.
