“IL SOLE NO MOUVE”


Been dealing a lot lately with this whole concept of CHANGE. *Was even thinking of hiring a Director of Change Management until I saw this Scott Adam’s Dilbert yesterday.

Putting together a Guidebook ON CHANGE, but wanted to get you thinking about this topic with a story about one of my favorite ‘thought leaders’, LDV.

“IL SOLE NO MOUVE”

Forty years before Copernicus revolutionized the world view, Leonardo da Vinca said, “THE SUN DOES NOT MOVE.” Both were born on a flat, unmoving planet in the center of the universe, around which the SUN CIRCLED.

A century after their deaths, that same planet was a rotating sphere orbiting around the sun somewhere in a universe too vast to even have a center! The church tried to suppress this as heresy. All of the best ‘THINKERS’ of the times thought this concept absurd.

The planet/solar system did not ‘CHANGE’, but the paradigm for understanding it had been turned inside out.

This story might help you re-think some of your own ‘systems’ and processes.
