It’s all very well knowing that how we currently work is broken. We can see how things could be better. But how do we start?
Usually we are not in a position to instigate wholesale change. We don’t have the authority or budget. Those above us, and who measure our performance, are stuck in the old way of doing things and have stopped listening to our attempts to paint an enticing picture of a different future. What to do?
Maybe that should be “What to don’t?”? Maybe we have to start saying no more often? Maybe we have to begin to exercise a degree of artistic interpretation of what we are asked to do? Maybe we have to act dumb and slow down things that maintain the status quo and put more energy into things that will bring about change?
Maybe we need to get used to asking for forgiveness rather than permission? Maybe we need to be careful while we are doing so?!
