Staying close to the edge 

Change takes place at the edge of things, rarely in the middle. Change is most productive where edges meet; the vast majority of evolutionary change occurs where different environments touch each other-sea and land, forest and plain.

Day to day pressures however conspire to keep us in the same place doing different versions of the same thing. In a recent blog, Adam Grant observed that practice makes perfect, but it doesn’t make new. In today’s conditions, new is a condition of progress.

We need to find our edges, and pay attention to them.
