In the natural course of events there are moments of transition, moments when the regular rules just don’t apply, can’t apply. The wild west, the early days of the internet, the lawlessness was not necessarily a good thing, but in those moments, on those frontiers came opportunities. We cannot fear moments of transition, we must embrace them and seek out the opportunities to turn the chaos into something better.
A time of transition is like a new deal from a deck of cards. Men and women of the 1860s who couldn’t make life work for them on the east coast headed west to make a new life for themselves. Pioneers, settlers, and explorers need new frontiers. This is true in the business world as well.
