We are Crazy but not Insane

Albert Einstein (a creative changemaker) is said to have defined INSANITY as:

“doing the same thing over and over again and EXPECTING different results”

Ain’t that the truth…

Tragic because in many ways this describes the world we live in largely.

We make the same mistakes over and over and somehow EXPECT the world would get better.

We train people for almost 2 decades then expect them to graduate into a life of monotony in a mindless day job and somehow EXPECT them to be happy.

Our governments mostly have the defence budget as the highest spend, putting more into machineries of war than into education, and somehow EXPECT there would be more peace in the world.

We run education systems that focus on individual learning & fact memorisation and then somehow HOPE we turn out collaborative and creative people (the very same skills we have so long and so hard beaten out of our people).

We promote and celebrate a consumption-ridden lifestyle based on artificial and hard manufacturing yet somehow EXPECT the ecosystem to be in balance.

Understandably, there are subcultures focused on doing the right things, but these are the EXCEPTION not the rule.

They are the ones referred to as CRAZY because their ideas and practices are not mainstream.

These are the one who should EMBRACE THIER CRAZY label because they are needed for the world to function.

They are the ones eulogised by Apple in their 1996 ad “Here’s to the Crazy Ones”.

Why think SAME???

WITHOUT THEM the world would fall to pieces.

These are the Creative Changemakers and WE have a new home at www.creatamorphosis.com
