"In an age of disruption the only viable strategy is to adapt" begins this post on strategy for life and career success. Gone are the old and familiar rules, and with it, comfort. We need "to learn how to unlearn."
"The Art of the Shift:"
In an age of disruption the only viable strategy is to adapt. Today things move too quickly to stick with old paradigms once their time has passed. Once outdated platforms fail to solve new problems, they will be overtaken with blazing speed and we must either make a shift or get left behind.
Yet that’s easier said than done. As I’ve pointed out before, even Albert Einstein himself was unable to accept a new model for physics, even though he was the one who first brought it about. Changing our mental model of how the world works is an exceedingly hard thing to do.
...It’s not enough to learn new ideas; we need to unlearn old ones.
