True stability results when presumed
order and presumed disorder are balanced. A truly stable system expects
the unexpected, is prepared to be disrupted, waits to be transformed.

– Tom Robbins

Thank you David Allen. (He’s
writing about personal productivity, but this applies equally well to
the wise design of ‘sustainable’ systems — whether ecological systems,
business systems, social systems (or the hopefully narrowing divide
between them).
