The Project Defined
The Antifragile Way is an ongoing intellectual project by Josh Harris. The purpose is to layout a set of philosophies, strategies, and tactics that individuals and organizations can use to better navigate the chaotic and uncertain world we all must operated within. This site is organized as a blog available for public viewing. All materials are copywrite Joshua A. Harris, but it is hoped that the blog posts and articles will be shared widely for those who may benefit. A note to any and all readers, this blog is purely written for the personal desires of myself. No advice is given prescriptively nor any statement meant to be the final word. All statements are purely opinions and thoughts of myself as author, they are yours to the extent you chose to accept them.
Antifragility is the trait by which a person, organization, system, or even an idea is strengthened in response to stress, chaos, and disorder. The term was first made widely popular by Nassim Taleb in his 2012 book entitled Antifragile – Things That Gain From Disorder; to specifically denote items with the exact opposite quality of being fragile (i.e. becomes damaged due to chaos and disorder). Since its publication, the term and its surrounding philosophy has been embraced by many thought leaders, philosophers, economists, psychologists, as well as everyday people who live life with “skin in the game” and know it to be true via lived experience. It is that last category from which I find myself personally qualified to speak from.
