Lunacy

Posted on: February 3, 2019

To paraphrase a famous quote attributed to an assortment of famous people: Insanity is repeating the same thing, but expecting different results.

I am not crazy that way, particularly in my courses and workshops. Careful design and strategic change are the operative principles in these contexts.

But I am insane when I play along for the sake of social niceties every lunar new year. Re: A recent reunion dinner.

I cannot change the design of what my extended family practices. As a result, we hear the same inane conversations, see the same bad behaviours, and perpetuate blind and excessive consumerism.

The problem is not helplessness; it is ignorance. If people do not know that some things need to change, they will not see the need to unlearn before changing for the better.
