Seth Godin is in my head

So I open up my iGoogle this morning and click on Seth Godin’s new blog post titled “Is Everything Ok?” and it mirrors my post from yesterday so much that I can’t help but repost it here.

Unless you work in a nuclear power plant, the answer is certainly no (and if you work there, I hope the answer is yes.)

No, everything is not okay. Not in a growing organization. Not if your company is making change happen, or dealing with customers. How could it be?

And yet, that’s what so many managers focus on. How to make everything okay.

We spend so much time smoothing things out, we lose the opportunity for change, or for texture or creativity.

Instead of working so hard to make everything okay, perhaps it is more helpful to work hard at living with a world that rarely is.
