When you visit a derelict property, we often notice the distance between the current state and the desired future state or vision. And it can be demoralising and frustrating. However, when we visit the property after 12 months of work and can remember what it was and see the change made, it is often impressive, uplifting, energising. We ‘see’ how far it has come.
Organisational or personal change is similar. When we look at how far we have to go, we are frustrated and down. However, when we look at how far we have come, we are happy.
The choice is up to us.
