Generosity to Change


My time management has been to not post this week. I have been traveling and busy of course. As a matter of fact, I woke up to snow earlier this week in Banff. I was there speaking at a Technoplanet event. They run events well.

I was at Directors College this weekend. One of the speakers - John Della Costa spoke on the Ethics of Governance. One phrase he used that really resonated was people need to have "the generosity to change". Interesting concept. It is generous to change. To not change is stubborn and selfish. Interesting.

Key to change for me is to study what is changing in the world and try to figure out what I need to do to adapt. Partly it goes back to my "Fail Often, Fail Fast, Fail Cheap". Partly it speaks to looking forward and trying to figure out the future (and how I can shape it).

Wow! I love that line: "It is generous to change."

I love that line too! Not only pertinent to business, but applicable to all of life.
Change is to grow and in growing we're often called to be generous with less of "self." Love it! Thanks for sharing.
