We say “change is hard” and then create processes to facilitate it. Yet, more often than not, the process is the barrier to change itself, the excuse not to act, the beauracracy that negates immediate, measurable impact by which we can make new, better choices.

Consider times in your life when you’ve witnessed dramatic, positive change in an individual or even an organization. The highest outcomes result from blink-of-the-eye shifts in behavior or mindset. Indeed a journey may precede the change, but the tipping point was the decision, not the process. And the power to decide is ever present.
