You CAN get there from here

“Change” isn’t something that “needs to happen.” It simply is. It’s active. It’s continuous. You may be driving it, you may be driven by it, but you definitely don’t want to be run over.

Assuming structures and/or processes are the best response to change is a surefire way to be run over. Checking boxes off a to do list and correctly formatted reports and clear definitions of who does what when won’t allow you to get there from here.

An open mind, curiosity, passion, and a willingness to compliment or be complimented by collaborators in getting “there” is much more handy.

Most key is an excitement in the knowledge of the active nature of change. There’s a desire, even a joy, in frequently getting to a different “there” starting from a different “here.”
