The walls displayed graffiti, the windows were broken and the doors were all boarded up; it was a scab on an otherwise high functioning corner. Directly across the street was the king of town: gambling, shopping, eating, entertainment. He was a one veritable one stop resort area. Across from it stood his cohorts. Two other well known and high functioning casino resorts.
How does this happen? That is, how can this corner, this worn out old casino and hotel, remain under developed on a prominent corner in the largest gambling city in North America? Better yet, while investors built and rebuilt areas of their gambling resorts, what was happening on this neglected corner?
I don't really know and it would be foolish to assume too much. But it reminded me that vitality in any enterprise is a continuous cycle. A business never "arrives" at success in such a way that continual investment isn't viable.
All ecosystems - regardless of their nature - have a cycle of renewal. When renewal and growth cease to function, the ecosystem breaks down, the life cycle ceases.
