Do you like change?
Someone asked me yesterday, “Do you like change?”
They were asking because I was watching the inauguration of President Obama.
My reply was, “Some change I like. I like orderly change. For example, I don’t like change that comes based on news from a doctor.”
A few other changes I don’t like are changes based on an emergency call in the night, or a traffic accident, or some unanticipated business announcements.
I like managed change and participatory change.
Although I didn’t vote for Obama, I was proud of him, America, and the smooth transition of governing that the inauguration showcased.
As I awoke this morning, I thought, Such “big” changes yesterday. Historic changes. And yet my day seems remarkably the same.
That’s the kind of change I like.
