Survival II

written by: Jacob Damstra

@jacobdamstra

 

The only constant 
in this world is change.
Survival of the fittest is a lie.
Those who are adaptable 
will inherit the earth.
To notice the changes,
especially in advance,
will give one an advantage -
in adapting, in responding
effectively and efficiently.
The strong, the solid,
the stubborn in their ways,
are bound to perish,
to fade with yesterdays.
