Progress means change

George Bernard Shaw wrote Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

Change doesn’t come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.  We are the change that we seek and now would be a pretty good moment to shift gear.

Winston Churchill said ‘To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” and it seems to be the case that nothing is permanent except change so our relationship to it defines us.

We might consider that we are in a moment of huge changes to what we have known, expected and banked on. Nobody knows what will come next.  How many of us saw Brexit coming, and what form this will finally take?    And Americans have voted and the world is unsure whether Donald Trump will bring a ripple or tsunami of change to their economic fortunes and harmonious relations.  Will such changes make us that much more interesting and win us more fans and business around the world? You never know.
