Video source

I watched this Vimeo-hosted video and was impressed by how the storyteller was able to weave a tale forwards and backwards.

Based on what I have read about this video elsewhere, I gather that some folks think that is makes more sense backwards than forwards.

I agree. And as I sometimes do, I started to connect this with courses that I facilitate. The course is change management with ICT in this case.

Sometimes things do not seem to make sense moving forward with change. We might just be reacting to the reactions to change. There are new changes to respond to, fires to put out, and busy work.

Hindsight almost always seems clear. It is easy to look back and reflect on change efforts to see where we went right or wrong.

But I fear that hindsight is not always accurate. It can tell another story because our experience colours the story or we look at the past through rose-tinted glasses.

This reminds me of a saying I learnt when I was young: Life is like grammar. It makes the past perfect and the present tense.

So very true when change agents face resistance. This is something I might close my change management elective with a several weeks time.
