How have you interpreted Taleb’s concept of Antifragility?

The panelists explored the concept of antifragility — stress and growth, the antifragile theory of the firm, resilience and robustness, the value and naturalness of chaos, antifragility and The Art of War, and the triad (fragile, robust, antifragile).

Fundamentally, the concept of antifragility involves a sense of aliveness in chaos, which has many synergies with The Art of War.

How have you translated your interpretation into practice?

The panelists explored the practice of antifragility — awareness and being awake to the illusion of control, the balance between efficiency and effectiveness in achieving more fragility or more antifragility, entrepreneurship, a sense of being to embrace whatever is becoming, awareness to foster naturalness versus seeing to be overly efficient or overly effective, and via-less versus via-more.

Fundamentally, the practice of antifragility involves embracing reality where one leverages their awareness (with self-reflection and empathy), choices or options, and navigates appropriately among various anchors.

What are the results and impacts of your efforts?

The panelists explored the results of the practice of antifragility — sense of peace through awareness and reflection, the notion of choices with options and power, antifragility engages people more than traditional improvement programs, co-working spaces and how children engage the world through innocent wonderment, zero-sum gains versus nonzero-sum gains, the individual and the group, scalability and the naturalness of chaos with the comfort of being in chaos versus the popular belief to remove all chaos, and redundancy and contingency as common sense.

Fundamentally, the results of the practice of antifragility involve a journey in being and becoming more alive.

The panelists emphasized that antifragility is not merely a goal (or ends) but more-so a tool (or means) to an end!

Fundamentally, being alive for the sake of being alive is problematic — there is more to our aliveness!
