In writing my book on corporate life cycles, which discusses what causes organizations to age, e.g., become bureaucratized, and how to rejuvenate them, I wondered why growing systems, people, and organizations have lots of energy while aging systems have little to no energy.
The observations supported my hypothesis. But the cause still remained unknown. So I wondered to myself: If I can decipher the cause maybe I can figure out not only how to rejuvenate organizations, which I have proven I know how to do, but to retard the aging of people too.
It was a subject that became very relevant to me as I started to feel my age at 77.
I think I found an answer.
