“The real cost of change or creating something of value is emotional, not economic. … The shift here is from an economic measure of cost to a personal measure of will. … This is the more important discussion and leads to a more realistic consideration of whether or not the price is too high.” – Peter Block, The Answer to How is Yes
So the question is: “What’s it worth to you?”
How much are you willing to change? YOU personally. Not the company, not your colleagues, not “the system.” YOU.
The price is too high if you’re not willing to commit the “personal measure of will” that is required. Without that commitment, whatever change you’re trying to create will fail. It’s that simple.
So ask yourself: “What’s it worth to me?” Ask your colleagues.
If every one of you isn’t willing to invest the personal measure of will required, then the price is too high and you shouldn’t waste your time.
