The path to lease resistance

 There is no point to convince people to buy to toilet paper if they use leaves. There is no point in creating a change where change is not welcome. This is the dilemma of arguing with people and finding the path to least resistance.

There is some old corporate cliche that many organizations live in a silo. It’s not the fact it is a lie, that makes it such a cliche thing to say, but the fact that people and departments tend to live in their own bubble.

Change is hard for some and impossible for others.

I had tried to open a discussion on some topics and once I see a person who might agree with the arguments, but state that their opinion is valid and that is all, I know that my time is done.

You can’t change unchangeable mind. Not when the logic and facts are not welcomed.

So what do we need to do then? Do we need to ignore such people and organizations altogether?

It is a very complex question, with no simple answer to it. But what we can all do in such a situation is to assess our options and what is the path to least resistance and follow it.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
