The Complexity of Change


Most critical of these issues is the recognition that change is embodied in a clear sequence of stages, and that for meaningful change to stick, you can expect to go through all these stages in turn. Deep change will drop us out of our comfort zone, our status quo, and carry us through a stage of disruption and chaos. Quite often we will see this as bad, and leap back to our old ways, back to that soothing place of familiarity. It can take significant effort to continue on our path, to find some mechanism or transforming idea that allows us to recognize the value of seeing the change through. If we have done well, we will reach a point where we have been successful in changing. This can be a tough journey, and at each stage of change we can find new reasons to fall back to where we started.
