      Nice post Roger. I have always been interested in stories about paradigm shifts. The one you described about the "alphabetization" is very nice.

      Thanks Roger. This is a useful metaphor to use with my coaching clients.

      This makes me think of a similar idea that I think comes from the designer Paul Rand. He said that when a design that he's working on doesn't quite seem right, he tries removing his favorite part. Sometimes that fixes the design; other times the design completely falls apart.
