If you are sitting on a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount
There is a saying among North American Indians – if you are sitting on a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. Of course, you can try to switch the horseman or try to feed the horse. You could also try to see how other tribes are dealing with their dead horses, but – the best strategy is to dismount.
We are stuck with a traditional mindset.

It will, of course, open up entirely new perspectives in business, and the profit could be substantial. Individual reputation will without any doubt be a dominant factor in the future.
