To turn the boat around

When we know we want to change direction, it isn’t enough to see the problem.

All the analysis in the world isn’t going to make any difference. We have to do something different.

But that something depends on what we are trying to shift.

If it’s a supertanker or an ocean liner, then the turning circle is in tens of miles.

Whereas a dingy needs the right winds.

Or the speedboat its sensitive navigation, because one degree out can have a dramatic impact, rather quickly.

For the kind of change we yearn for, we may have to take the smaller and more humble boats to be agile enough to explore new territory. Giving confidence for the bigger ships to follow on.

And shift our expectations from changing the world to changing ourselves.

So we can become the change we want to see.
