Please Follow Me @DECastleAdvisor And Join Me At http://bit.ly/1turnaround




I'm Not Jealous Of Alec Baldwin. I'm Just Jealous Of His HAIR.

Friends, Colleagues, Clients, Readers And The Occasional Paper Clip Thief:

I should be back to my usual pattern of obsessive blogging on too many subjects by August 8th, and I thank you so kindly for your patience while I'm rapidly on the mend.

In the meantime, would you please do me a great kindness and 1) visit my new blog at http://douglasecastleblog.com, and then 2) follow me (please...this only takes a quick moment) on my brand-new Twitter account at http://twitter.com/DECastleAdvisor?

Thank you, and I'm hoping that you've missed me.

Until then, please be healthy, safe, of good spirits and prosperous -- or on your way to prosperity.

Faithfully,

Douglas

p.s. Kindly look at the image below. When I've looked at it (in a darkened room) for more than a minute or two, I have found that simultaneous with my body relaxing, my mind starts to wander in a fascinating way. I recommend it. It's wonderful, easy meditation, and you don't need any dangerous drugs. Seemingly silly exercises like this one have made my "comeback" much quicker. You can click on the image to see it at its full size, which is considerably larger.





The fascinating shape is actually an impossible recursive pattern wrapped around a doughnut-like shape called a toroid. Really. Look it up if you like.

Disruption As A Determinant Of Fate



I have often heard people quote (paraphrase) a somewhat famous philosopher in stating that "Whatever doesn't kill me only serves to make me stronger." I myself have used variations of this is conversations about various challenges or fears.

If the "Whatever" in the quote can be taken out and the words "If disruption" could be inserted, you can easily see the defining power of disruption. It is adaptive. It is evolutionary. It is selective in favor of the intellectually and physically swifter.

Disruption is the ultimate test -- we either adapt, migrate, or die. If we are collectively a business or a technology, we become extinct (through displacement) or we become more efficient and more competitive.

While it will frighten some to think of it this way, disruption is a potential extinction event.

This is indeed something to ponder.

An unscathed survivor of multiple disruptive events is probably the best person to follow when climbing a mountain, navigating a maze or exploring a cavern.

In brief, disruption separates the leaders from the losers. And it always has since the beginning of time.
