Status Quo

quotes Apr 24, 2024

I heard this last week and it made me chuckle so I wanted to share, "Status quo is Latin for "the mess we are in"."

I think far too often we see the current state of affairs as the easiest and most stable state even though that might not be the case. We need to learn to step back and assess more of the reality of the current state to know whether or not change is needed. How do you push yourself to look at situations more objectively?

(The image reminded me of the awesome talk by David Foster Wallace, This is Water, which is not unrelated to the topic.)
