It amazes me how much people will ignore things that do not work. They will just tune the problem out, and then pretend that is has to be that way, or that is how the people in charge want it to be. They never seem to get the idea that they can change things, even though if asked or nudged, they will agree they could, maybe.
Everything changes, and since it does, you can influence that change, you can make anything change direction.
It may take time, I know it will take work, and it will take disagreeing with the current process, and arguing with those afraid to change, but you can change the world around you.
People seem to wait around, looking at a big problem, and hoping that somehow it either will go away, or someone else will fix it. More often than not, no one comes, the miracle doesn't happen, and you limp along never making it better. People will often act like sheep, staring at the future with blank eyes.
I can't do that.
I simply can't, and that means is sometimes hard to be around me, but I cannot wait for someone to fix a problem, I just have to make it happen. I am the guy who pokes a stick at the snake to see what it does.
You make a decision, and if it doesn't work, then you figure out why, and do it again.
You have to look for opportunities for action.
How do you fix a big problem?
First off it isn't a big problem. That is in your head.
What is bothering you is that there are several small problems around you and you are not looking close enough, so you think there are one big one.
Look closer, everything can be broken down, and then it becomes clear and simple.
if you break problems down into steps and then start solving them one at a time, the problem becomes less massive, and more manageable, and things change.
As things start to change, you can momentum, and suddenly everything starts to change.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
