Why does everything have to grow?

I know that this is not a particularly ground-breaking idea, but… why do companies, ideas, projects have to grow to be considered successful? Why is not okay for anything to just be the size it is now, the size it…

No value.

I think that I need a place on the internet to write down some of the thoughts that I have. I suspect that I’ll post to this site quite infrequently, mostly when the mood takes me, and time allows.
