When it comes to embracing change we're typically afraid to take the plunge. But, why?
The story we sometimes tell ourselves is that we're afraid of the splash, but I wonder if that's true.
Could it be that we're so afraid of upsetting the apples in the status quo cart that we lay blame on the outcome rather than the trigger?
While we can clearly see what the plunge looks like because it's right in front of us, the same cannot be said about the future splash.
When we dream of a new pair of loudspeakers we imagine just how great our music system might be. But what if we're wrong? Is it better not to take the plunge, nesting in the safety of what we know, or risk failure by taking a chance that it might work?
The best systems I have ever heard were crafted by people willing to step out on a limb where the sweetest fruits are found.
