Disruption May Be the New Norm

"Change is the only constant in life." ~ Hereclitus, Greek philosopher.

Change is happening so fast now that it is disrupting the current status.  Examples are Amazon vs. bricks and mortal retail, Netflix vs. cable, and Trump vs. the politocracy.   We've already seen the results for Amazon and Netflix.  It's still way too early to evaluate the results for Trump.

The challenge with disruption is that initially it does not appear to be a big idea.  I think back to the beginnings for Amazon and Netflix.  Neither appeared to be big ideas.   And of course, very few people expected Trump to win.

However, I believe disruption will be more likely and more frequent than in the past decade.  Of course, the difficulty will be finding disruptions before they are recognized as such.  In my opinion, health care is has a high potential of being a disrupted business, given my brief interactions in the area and the intensive focus on the businesses.

We shall see.
