If It Ain’t Broke…Break It

My two year old son, like many two-year-olds, loves to smash and break and throw his toys. As logical adults, parents can’t help but ask, “Why on earth would my child throw or break something that he clearly loves and enjoys so much?” The answer is quite simple – curiosity and a need to push boundaries. A car is great to roll around on the floor, but how much greater and more exciting could it be if it flew through the air? It’s the same sense of curiosity that we as adults must have as we look to the future.

The old saying,”If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” encourages us to leave things the way they are and makes the assumption that everything is fine.

We live in a world where public trust in every major institution is seeing all-time lows. I challenge you to ask yourself if you really believe that things are the way they’re supposed to be. If not, then now is the time to break old ways of thinking, outdated models, and irrelevant processes and procedures.

And just remember that a car is great to roll around on the floor, but how much greater and more exciting could it be if it flew through the air?
