Economic Ecotones: Seek Edge Effect Individual Businesses

Economic Ecotones: Seek Edge Effect Individual Businesses

Edge effects Guarantee Opportunities and Powerful Diversity. In the 1930s, Aldo Leopold, an American environmentalist invented the term “edge effect.” Eugene Odum popularize this idea in the 1950s, described an ecotone as“an area or zone of transition between two or more diverse communities.” Nowadays, this concept of ecotones has been widely applied to individual businesses.

“ Everyone is looking for an edge, or advantage, in business [….]We define an “edge” as the outer rim that frames what you do and separates it, quite conveniently, from what you don’t [….] Edges have another interesting property; they are the places wherethe inside and the outside meet […] In nature, in civilization, and, indeed, in business, the peripheriesteem with the most fascinating interactions. Where things meet, opportunities abound [….] At the edges, the populations, resources, nutrients, lights, and food from both ecosystems mix. Some species exist only in ecotones, given the uniquely fertile environment that the combination of the two worlds creates.” This paragraph is excerpted from the Harvard Business Review Press book Edge Strategy: A New Mindset for Profitable Growth.

國外研究證實阿茲海默症患者「禁糖」可逆轉病情!維他命E主修復,容易緊繃的人類可多補充富含維生素B和鈣的食物。提高體溫便可提振心情和提高自癒力。提升免疫力,穴道按摩排除氣結是其一。科學已證實正面情緒可降低「身體發炎指數和血糖指數」。禍福相依,創傷之所以存在,往往不是事件本身,而是人們的負面解讀和負面標籤。拔牙與產子都是巨痛,但創傷比例偏低,是因為人們給予了事件正面的存在意義,並且相信所有人都能熬過去的意志。不記他人之惡,因為佛教基督教都一樣,老天爺(上帝)都記在本子裡了。理財時代,從照顧好自己的健康開始。想著別人的壞,為難了自己,想著別人的好,溫暖了自己!不屬於自己的只會逗留,不會久留。不自律就不太可能快樂。不自律,就很難肯定自己。做該做的事,而不是想做的事。「柔」「自律」「耐心」….To love and to repent.
