Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. -Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)
Changing yourself for the better is always celebratory. Changes could be feasible when strategies for changes are applied together with discipline and evaluation.
BEING the change is even better but not as easy. Being the change in an organisation is even harder.
Organisations have set habits, behaviours and cultures that can cause resistance to change unless put under huge pressure. And even so, sometimes, organisations still fail in adapting to changes. Sometimes, the past successes of the organisation could be the very hindrance to changes as they underpin their identity. Yet if a change is required for adaptation and growth, it could be powerful and yield substantial rewards.
Many factors and circumstances are required for changes to happen. But one thing I know for sure. Two are better than one….A cord of three strands is not quickly broken (Ecclesiastes 4). Having a group of like-minded people who share the same values, vision and the ups and downs; who are there for each other no matter what happens would make any difficult journey worthwhile. Two are always better than one.
