Everybody wants the world to change

Well, some of us do. It’s that fundamental human urge to travel ever onwards. A river of life thing, bound with the laws of the universe, where time travels only forwards and where we can never go back.

It’s the opposite of stasis. A word that speaks to us of stagnation. A moribund state of mind, unhealthy and dull. Much better for the human spirit to feel that satisfaction of leaving this world a better place than we entered it. Whatever drives us, it’s a potent spirit, insatiable and indomitable. Science and politics, art and technology. Whatever the field of human endeavour, change is the only constant.

It includes the little things in life. The cyclical home improvements, the next iPhone, the latest diet fad. Change is all around us. On the bigger stage we have altered our political and economic structures. Change can be revolutionary, but revolution tends to conjure up images of conflict, or profound struggle. Chaos and anarchy. Altogether messy and disruptive.

It’s why we prefer evolution. Measured, logical and controlled. Much more sustainable. Something that hasn’t escaped the attention of our brightest political and business leaders. Take Soichiro Honda. Mr Honda knew a thing or two about change. He lived by the mantra of ‘Evolution not Revolution’. His multinational corporation grew from tiny beginnings to global giant, gradually and thoughtfully. Such was his success you’ll see that by-word in corporate brochures and vision statements around the globe.
