Change Is Not Linear

Air pollution falls by unprecedented levels in major global cities ...

It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes it will
-Sam Cooke

We’re in tumultuous times. No question.

Lots of changes need to be made. Everywhere. Everyone.

One truism about change is that things have to get really bad before we take action. We first have to see, know and feel just how bad things are. Then decide to do something about it. Because we don’t want to feel that way any longer.

Perhaps that’s where we are now. We’ve had enough.

Another truism about change–and one that should give us enormous hope- is that change is not linear. The time it took for things to get this bad is not equal to the time it takes to make a radical difference.

For proof on a micro level, think of losing weight, getting out of debt or reversing any negative habit.

On a macro level, look at some of the before and after pictures of our earth during this Coronavirus slowdown.

We can change. We will change. And that change will have a giant impact.

Faster than we thought possible.

So let’s do it. We’re all in this together.
