We humans can be a funny lot.
But then entropy sets in: we’re busy, we’re distracted, perhaps politics are in play.
Besides, isn’t there a World Cup game that needs watching?
Change the circumstance to a crisis footing (or the perception of one), and — all of the sudden — the ball moves much faster down the field, obstacles diminish and magic can often result.
Those of us who aspire to be change agents should take ample note of this useful human foible, and always be on the lookout for a good crisis that can be used to advance the agenda.
Or, failing that, perhaps fabricate your own.
