Resolve To Evolve - Grasshopper

Itís been my experience that relatively few people, if any, change. I do find that people can evolve.

Change is too big a goal that, too often, has failure built into it. Just look at any New Yearís Resolution that youíve ever made.

 

Evolving is much easier. Itís not one big piece; itís a series of movements over time that when pieced together resemble change.

 

Just as with change, evolving takes some noticing Ė notice that youíre doing something thatís thwarting your forward progress. Changing that thing is like trying to eat a whole cow at once (for vegans, think of ingesting a field of kale at one sitting).

 

Evolving begins with noticing and then pulling on a loose thread a little at a time. Before long an unraveling begins that is hard to come back from.

 

Change, on the other hand, leaves the garment untouched with just a resolution not to wear it again. When the verve of the resolution wears off, there is a whole ensemble at the ready for you to don again.

 

Evolving is hard to come back from. It actually alters the fabric of your make up a little at a time.

 

Resolve to Evolve. Itís a more manageable method of morphing from the old to the new and makes change an outdated goal to pursue.

 

All the best,

John
