In times of innovation, increased technology and changes to the resources available in organisations, new operating processes are part of the changes afoot. When learning new ways of doing things, you need to unlearn the old ways and relearn the new. How do you unlearn something?
Do you like getting out of your comfort zone? Or, do you prefer to stay with your familiar, well known routines? Would you take a leap of faith across a gap in your experience and learning or stay put and consider the chasm as an onlooker? How do you mind the gap?
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
~ Nelson Mandela
The key is to embrace disruption and change early. Don’t react to it decades later. You can’t fight innovation.
~ Ryan Kavanaugh
As autumn comes to a close, we move to the next episode in our flexible, snow seeking life-style. With only days to go until winter is upon us, there is no snow yet. The lingering golden hues of autumn and the icy bite of the wind hint at the changes to come as we settle into our Australian winter home.
Changes and resettling
Moving from Japan back to Melbourne, and then on to Hotham to a new job brings long lists of thing to do, buy and pack. Reorganising our lives in this way is more familiar but there are still a few things to fine-tune before we settle into a new routine.
There are sometimes hiccups in the transition and this has affected my blog posts this week. I will return to my routine next week, with posts already in the pipeline.
Enjoy your last days of autumn or spring (depending on where you are in the world), and embrace the changes the new season brings. Have a great weekend!
To change one’s life, start immediately, do it flamboyantly, no exceptions.
~ William James
In this new world, you and I make it up as we go along, not because we lack expertise or planning skills, but because that is the nature of reality.
Reality changes shape and meaning because of our activity.
And it is constantly new.
We are required to be there, as active participants. It can’t happen without us and nobody can do it for us.
~ Margaret Wheatley
If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
