POLITICAL PUNDIT SERIES: CHANGE
By Jeffery Igbinigie
“It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things”- Niccolo Machiavelli (1469 – 1527)
Human psychology contains many dualities, one of them being that even while people understand the need for change, knowing how important it is for us all to be occasionally renewed, we are also irritated and upset by changes that affects us personally.
We know that change is necessary, and that novelty provides relief from boredom, but deep inside we cling to the past and our old ways.
Abstract change or superficial ones is what we all desire, but a change that upsets core habit and routines is deeply disturbing to us all.
Change is gradual and its implementation and introduction is meant to be applied gradually. Looking back in the last 32 months, present administration promised change, with full intent of applying it immediately and not taking into consideration people’s psychology and mindset.
Hopefully, there will be lessons learnt from the few missteps made and positively readdressed going forward.
