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.
