Deep Change by Robert E. Quinn

Re-reading one of my favorites! Quinn writes…

“What we fail to see is that our success by the old formula is like a map that has guided us to the edge of known territory. We cross a line into new territory and when we try to apply our old map there, strange and frustrating things happen. We get into a vicious cycle. We continue to explore our new and problematic territory with an old map, and that makes our problems worse. Our certainty that our old map must work drives us into a state of great pain and frustration. Only when our pain gets excruciating are we willing to humble ourselves and consider new actions that might allow us to successfully progress in our new situation.” pg. 66.
