The more things change…

Posted on: January 19, 2019

… the more things remain the same. So the saying goes.

Sometimes when folks trying to implement change tell me their stories, that saying echoes in my head.

Inertia, indifference, and ignorance entrench the status quo. Change, if it happens at all, happens so slowly as to be inperceptible.

But isn’t some change better than none at all?

No, not when the change is backward.

No, not when the change is so slow as to leave stakeholders so far behind that they seem to moving backward.

So again I say:

Standing still is like moving backwards if you do nothing as the world rushes by.
