I’m all for progress, but I don’t want to change. Isn’t that a silly statement? Of course it is. It’s duplicitous. You can’t have one without the other. One must change in order to progress. Yet, there are many of us who unknowingly insinuate this all the time, whether it’s part of one’s personality, or the outlook by top administrators of a company.
As human beings, we know we are creatures of habit, and as they also say, “Old habits die hard.” It’s true. It’s also true that the older one gets, the more reluctant one is to change. Boy, I feel as though I’m having a déjà vu as I write this, but we may say we are all for progress, but we are doing things that insinuate otherwise. There’s the ambiguity!
