Don’t get too comfortable: Story of Balearic Islands cave goat

Balearic Islands cave goat had no predators for many generations of their evolution that their eyes moved from the side of their heads to forward-facing. The species had gone extinct when new stressors showed up (predators, humans, and others).

I was thinking recently about the social and business versions of this goat.

Companies like Kodak, My-Space, Blockbuster, Blackberry, etc., all fit the Goat category in my view.

(Related Note: According to a forecast by Innosight, the average company will only last just 12 years on the S&P 500 by 202)
