Only the paranoid survive. If you’re a student of technology companies, you’ve heard this adage many times. That, ultimately, you must disrupt yourself. Because if you don’t, the winds of change will set upon you and you will be rendered obsolete. It has been true for a multitude of technology companies big and small, and technologies important and not. The lesson from all of this is that you must always question where the world is going, place small bets about what the future could look like but then have the courage to follow through on some of these bets when the data says so.
