What is the definition of insanity?
To continue to do the same things and to expect different results each time.
If you are trying to make improvements in your organisation, it may seem as if you are trying to move a large object by tying a rope to it and pushing on the rope. It gets really frustrating, and brings to mind an apt statement: “The only good thing about banging your head against the wall is that it feels good when you stop.”
So, stop banging your head against the wall.
Recognise that change is difficult. Recognise that you will not always get the level of support you want – or need. On the brighter side, recognise that step-by-step you can begin to make progress in your change efforts by understanding the capability of your organization to support its change initiatives.
What is important for you to remember is that organisations at all levels of readiness can successfully initiate change. It is time to make change happen.
