Adaptation doesn’t really exist as a quality on its own. Adaptation lies in having at the ready a repertoire of available responses… Adaptation means having a tool kit of backup preparedness: people, plans, responses, ideas, possibilities, attitudes, and equipment that allow you to construct solutions quickly.


Adaptation requires a mindset that deals with uncertainty. That’s not a mindset so much of seeking ever-increasing profits and growth; it’s a mindset, at least in the extreme, of survival. And it’s a mindset of being prepared to let go of dearly held, constricting beliefs.
