Here is a great post on the Tom Peters blog called Relating to Anomalies. It references a book called The Structure of Scientific Revolutions by Thomas Kuhn. This is a classic book that we all should have on our shelf or checked out from the library. I love this quote from the post:
"When we can't make anomalies conform to our current mindset, they can lead us to the "reconstruction of prior theory," an intrinsically revolutionary process."
Whoa...that's heady. Are you ready...open... for personal revolution?
