I embrace change. I love change. Instead of the universally held opinion that things will be worse off as a result of the change. I feel that everything will be better…sooner or later. I even borrow ideas for change from other fields to adapt to my needs to make change a constant in my life. I remember reading that the cubist art of Picasso inspired WWI military designers to create better camouflage patterns for tanks and eventually for uniforms.
Keep in mind that you don’t always have to make big changes to have a big impact. Sometimes change is best implemented in small increments. Small change doesn’t intimidate people as much as trying to make big changes. I always feel that if it’s something small…I can do it…it’s not really a big deal. In addition…small change…critically placed…can create enormous results.
Consider this: What happens to water at 211 degrees fahrenheit? Not much, really It gets hot and may have a few pinpoint bubbles, but for the most part, it just sits there in the pot. Now…just add just one more degree of heat and the same water begins to boil at 212 degrees. This is an increase in heat of less than one-half of one percent, but look at the change it generates. The resulting steam can heat large buildings and power huge engines. It can power machines that can move mountains and build highways…all the result of a degree of change. ~ Mack Newton
