It is said that nature is in a constant flux. It is perpetually trying to evolve and rebuild itself to accommodate the myriad species which populate its canvass. As we look around we observe a million species, each festooned with a uniqueness which bemuses us. Every single one of them plays a significant role in maintaining nature's poise. Every species is a survivor. How did they do it? How did they surpass the vagaries of nature? The answer is simple. Adaptation. They have all adapted themselves to the changing environment by making considerable changes in their physical and mental stratum. To change with the change is the challenge. For this to happen we need to be consistently aware of the environment in which we are thriving. In all works on natural history we constantly find details of the marvelous adaptation of the animals to its food, its habits and the environment to which it belongs. Let us learn from them.

Often we encounter situations where we need to act differently. The obvious solution may not be the right one. Such circumstances may stretch and vitiate our infallibility. It may deride us of our confidence. There is a possibility of losing ourselves in the process. The only way out is by adapting to the situation and learning to survive in extremities. The ability to adapt is a fundamental property of life and constitutes a basic difference between animate and inanimate things.

The ethics of adaptation can be applied any where. Organizational success depends on a firm's ability to navigate environmental complexities and adapt to conditions around them. Success is often elusive and to survive one must adapt to the demands put forth by a constantly changing milieu.

We play different roles in our lives - of a father/mother, son/daughter, sister/brother, employee, friend etc. The success in each role depends on how best we can adapt effectively to the respective roles. Charles Darwin has once rightly said that "The survival of the fittest is the ageless law of the nature, but the fittest are rarely the strong. The fittest are those endowed with the qualities of adaptation, the ability to accept the inevitable and conform to the unavoidable, to harmonize with the existing or changing conditions.

We, of all the species ubiquitous in nature, are embellished with cognitive faculties to perform tasks with intelligence. Let us think and adapt ourselves effectively to fit into the minutiae of our myriad roles in life.
