Ch... Ch... Ch... Changes!

"The act of creation begins first as an act of destruction." - Picasso

Face it. No one likes change. No one likes chaos. No one likes starting all over again -- especially the older we get.

Get over it! The only way the species survives (and your organization) is by adapting to change -- and change is what's upon us now. Big time.

The economy is crumbling. The old institutions are dying. Nothing, on the outside, ever stays the same. Picasso knew this. YOU know this. And your customers are only going to wait so long for you to turn your knowing into action.

So, let the old forms die. Let what no longer works fall away. Then, usher in the birth of WHAT'S NEXT -- before that, too, falls away -- only to be replaced by what's next after what's next.

"Let what no longer works fall away..." Indeed. In my country (Nigeria) everyone is hungry for change. And your short article helps me to see more clearly that for the anticipated change to occur, we need to start, now more than ever, embracing new ideas, systems and strategies; doing away with old ideologies and practices.

It is indeed hard. But that is the message I am going to keep preaching in my blog, magazine and anywhere I find myself.

Thanks for this.
