As the famous Apple commercial said, “The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” While a lot of people turn to politics to leave their mark, creative destruction is one of the more effective ways to bring about change.
Creative destruction is about personal empowerment. Rather than trying to build something from within a set of limitations, rules, and bureaucracies, you start with an empty sandbox. You create from the ground up, adjust according to the reactions of your audience, and iterate. You are the creator. And you create by engaging with real people and dealing with real market consequences.
