  • Unlocked: Five Practices to open the door and move you forward
  • Antifragility is a property of systems in which they increase in capability to thrive as a result of stressors, shocks, volatility, noise, mistakes, faults, attacks, or failures. The concept was developed by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his book, Antifragile, and in technical papers. In his book, Taleb stresses the differences between antifragile and robust/resilient. "Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better." The concept has now been applied to ecosystems in a rigorous way.

[12/21/2021 8:27:09 AM] Andrew Muras: Madelyn. Great talk. Most surprising - writing a story every day. Do you have an article or blog post on these 5 practices?

[12/21/2021 8:36:55 AM] Eve Porter-Zuckerman: I’m enjoying thinking about deliberate silence. Do you find you draw upon your thought during this time as you write…

[12/21/2021 8:36:55 AM] Eve Porter-Zuckerman: … your daily story? Your lists?

[12/21/2021 8:39:47 AM] Jean-Claude Monney: How much time do you allocate daily to write your story?

[12/21/2021 8:40:15 AM] Ninez: Think journaling is a great way to process feelings, and thoughts. and all the internal stories your mind makes up to appease the ego.

[12/21/2021 8:44:31 AM] Jean-Claude Monney: Have to run. Enjoyed the talk. Happy holidays to all.

[12/21/2021 8:46:33 AM] Eve Porter-Zuckerman: “I garden people” is a lovely image

[12/21/2021 8:52:10 AM] Retha Prinsloo: It was an interesting talk, incl. that resilience is a choice. Thanks Madelyn 🙏

[12/21/2021 8:57:56 AM] Ninez: Yoga and meditation is a great resource for personal knowledge management because it deepens self-knowledge.

[12/21/2021 8:59:33 AM] Tim Powell: @Ninez, personal knowledge begins with self-knowledge!

[12/21/2021 8:59:33 AM] Tim Powell: Good talk, thanks Madelyn and Stan.  Happy holidays to all!
