Overview

Despite the way it sounds, disruption isn't about causing trouble on purpose, pushing others out the market, or destroying an old industry. Apart from being very much out of the disruptor's hands (the world has to be ready to be disrupted and accept the change, after all) successful disruptors never focus on the negative. Instead, they focus on the positive change they're trying to cause.

Steve Jobs always worded it this way: challenging the status quo. A challenge is a game, an experiment, a call out to the incumbent. It comes without bad intentions and is not presumed on winning vs. losing. However, Whitney Johnson picked the word "disrupt" in the title of Disrupt Yourself as it adds a whole lot of positive connotation to it, and helps us rethink how we see the word. Thanks to this brilliant framework, readers are challenged to shake up the status quo.
