So this popped up in my email. It’s a very quick review of what it’s like being in a volunteer organization, wanting to move the needle forward a bit, or a lot.
BHS is 70 years old. Imagine the number of changes that have happened along the way, and yes, most have likely been faced with resistance.
And now, I am one of the change addicts, who want better, more relevant, improved and more loved. None of it is easy; all of it is necessary.
#everyoneinharmony says it all…
There’s nothing in the dentist’s office that was there fifty years ago. Every device, every compound, every technique has been changed.
Bit by bit. Involving thousands of people and organizations. Improvements large and small (mostly small), in every corner.
And every one of those improvements was met with resistance. Every change was fought, tooth (!) and nail. Every one had critics and skeptics and hold outs.
That’s how the world changes. By drips. Persistent, generous, tiny drips.
( Who inspires, frustrates, encourages and nudges me, and usually just gets it right.)
