Survival of the Fittest

Darwin’s observations led him to describe how species survive with a phrase that became known as survival of the fittest. But, I’m not here to discuss Darwinism.

What we find upon examination is that it’s not the strong who are fit, nor the most intelligent. It is those who are most adaptable to change.

The Google hiring criteria once instructed to look for not only intelligence, but more importantly, look for people who are curious and adaptable to change.

One way to encourage your own adaptability is to develop high quality connections to other human beings.

The idea of the rugged individualist who survives and thrives totally alone is a myth.

Learn and apply one new thing every day. Teach someone else. Nourish a connection. Become fit.
