Things That Blow My Mind

Change and the Unexamined Life

“In addition to our personal and lifelong contributions, our world is brought into being by the changes that occur in it, changes that accelerate as we speak. The result is a mixture of involvement–plus discovering the external facts, the data the world sends to us, the changes that we makes as cultures and as individuals, changes made by science and technology, and change caused by political action and by wars. What puts it all together in one comprehensive mix is of course the adaptation of which living beings–especially humans–are capable.” – Peter Koestenbaum, Practicing Organization Development: A Guide for Leading Change
