Bite-sized lesson 3: Change

Posted on: December 1, 2017

I am recreating some of my favourite image quotes I created some time ago. This time I use Pablo by Buffer and indicate attribution and CC license.

Change is not about asking for permission first. It is about asking for forgiveness later.

This quote is about recognising that we are all part of a larger social system, e.g. schooling and education. If we are not part of the solution, then we are part of the problem. If we are not pushing and pulling for meaningful change, then we are maintaining the status quo to the overall detriment of the system.

Sometimes change agents need to move or create movement even when the system is not ready and terribly unforgiving. If the attempts to change fail, change agents need to apologise for the fall and pick themselves up.

If the change succeeds, everybody wins. The change agents might still need to apologise for creating a fuss in the first place.

Note: I am on vacation with my family. However, I am keeping up my blog-reflection-a-day habit by scheduling a thought a day. I hope this shows that reflections do not have to be arduous to provoke thought or seed learning.
