“Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile. Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
I write about how to craft rewarding professional careers for an accelerating world. Or, as Taleb would put it, antifragile careers that thrive in the age of change.
Welcome to my little repository of experiments, ideas and lessons learned as I continue to explore how to best deal with professional change and performance at work.
I regularly contribute to publications like Better Humans (Medium members-only posts), eFinancialCareers.com, the IE Talent & Careers Blog, The Mission or The Startup. I also answer questions related to the above topics on Quora.
