His belief was that ephemeralization would result in ever-increasing standards of living for an ever-growing population despite finite resources. One of the ways that he believed this would occur is through disruptive innovation - where new ways of thinking, and new technologies would create novel and better solutions to life's problems.
Here’s a quote I came across today from Bucky:
“In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete.”
I'm a fan of Bucky's thought process. It's amazing to look at the last 50 years of innovation and consider how much more efficiently we can do so many things today.
While there are several things that Codiligent has already done to change the traditional problematic business brokerage model, Bucky's ideas challenge me to consider what else can I do to create an entirely new and better model for buying and selling businesses? If you have ideas I'd love to hear them.
Likewise, I challenge you to think about what can you do in your industry that is revolutionary, not evolutionary? What paradigm can be shredded, discarded, and replaced by a new more efficient and effective model for your industry?
