Tsunami or Erosion

Is the change you initiate like a tsunami that changes the landscape in an instant?

Will the change that you bring be like erosion that slowly and steadily, but almost imperceptibly, changes rocks and landscapes?

Will your change be a slow, steady wind that causes trees to grow bent and dunes to move year-by-year?

You have a choice of how you will bring change.

But however you bring change, you must take responsibility for it.

If you are the tsunami: you are responsible for the collateral damage. Don’t try to pass the blame.

If you are erosion: you are responsible for the apparent lack of forward movement. Make sure that you are explaining your long game.

If you are the wind, you are responsible for the fact that no one knows where the change comes from. Don’t forget to point to the positive forward movement that is being made.
