"The only constant in life is change" -Heraclitus
Nothing 'natural' is meant to last forever. And even if it were, would it be beneficial and purposeful?
In a carbon built world, the complexity and pursuit of achieving eternal life is an illusion. After all, everything that used to exist has changed, evolved, decayed or dissolved.
If this is true, why isn't the same metaphor applied to products, experiences and even companies?
These inspirational examples showcase and embrace a non-conformity, presence and perseverance for a brighter future where change is the inclusiveness, and long-term commitment is an opportunity.

The meaning of change is neither positive nor negative, but rather co-existing. Without change, we cannot learn, and many times that is harder than it is fun, but in the end, we get to harvest the fun with our new abilities and insights.
We shouldn't force ourselves to think either optimistic or pessimistic about change, but rather embrace the notion of change so that we can become better surfers of the constant fluctuations around us.
Stay golden and shiny my friends!
