Complex Systems, including humans, become unstable, meltdown, then reconfigure in a better way, said 1978 Nobel Prize Winner
- It's called "The theory of dissipative structures" by nobel prize Ilya Prigogine is that all complex structures reach a point where they become unstable, meltdown, crash, then "reconfigure in a better way."
- Many corporations are run that way as well.
- Teams are broken down, and reorganized into new teams all the time.
- Anticipate change, and the possibility that one's complex life, will eventually become unstable, then eventually you will be better for it.
