Only where there is struggle is there progress. I don’t mean struggle in the battle type sense, I mean the struggle between order and chaos, status quo and innovation, all info known and no info known.
Natural selection, the internet, your business, the universe… the edge of chaos is where there is something instead of nothing. Nothing is almost equivalent to no interesting thing (complete order) and no understandible thing (complete chaos). The stuff of life is in the middle!
I like to talk about happy accidents… those seridipitis tangets that one happens into if they venture into struggle and keep their senses open and opprtunistic. These branches of opportunity only come about when there’s a clash between the wellknown and the unknown.
Be mindful of history but venture forth into uncertainty. Struggle to find the edge and don’t fall off.
