The True Definition of an Organization

The true definition of an organization is one that is organized. Organized in all areas of fundamental business best practices. A business that is not organized should instead be known as a chaoticization.

A successful organization is the product of organized individuals all aiming for the same goal; all affecting eachother simultaneously through their actions. They share the same resources and they all play on the same team. An efficient organization gains knowledge and produces more than would be possible through a mass of single individuals alone. It functions on the same principles that governs the growth and organization of our individual bodies. We can learn alot about the world's organizations by observing the most efficient organization on Earth, our body.

Globalization also known as outsourcing, is like half of our body discovering that it can work with the other half. The discovery is new so it faces scrutiny. It may be uncomfortable and a few kinks have to be ironed out before it works properly but in the end it is what's best for the entire body.

Traversing the barriers of space with communication lines that allow information to travel the world and back in the blink of an eye, mirrors the communication links developed thousands of years earlier in our nervous system. Even with all the great technological advances of our time I cannot help but marvel at the ability for data to travel at light speed from one side of our body to the other.

Our external world is a growing reflection of the evolution that has been refined in ourselves. We can learn a lot by observing what has already proven to be a best pratice and apply it. We know our bodies have limited resources. We can toxify our minds and bodies or purify them. We can increase the longevity of our cellular universe or shorten it by the choices we make as a collective consciousness. A single cancerous cell could spread and lead to our ultimate doom. A single brain, like Earth, may stand united or divided. Our futures are written before us if we will only see it. We can adopt the best practices of an established organization or lead an uncertain chaoticization of future.
