One section of my lecture at QuiltCon was about how our family embraces change. For the bulk of our careers my husband and I have spent the majority of our time convincing people to change. Change is tough for some folks, but how people react to change is pretty predictable (people react in a variety of ways). Loads of research has been done about change and one of the foremost experts, Michael Fullan, was in Chicago last week.
His talk made me think about the changes that are happening in the quilting community and within the Modern Quilt Guild. Reactions to change are interesting: some jump in with both feet, some folks bristle, some sabotoge, some embrace, some question, some adapt the new to what they've always done etc.
Michael shared this video to illustrate one of his points about change. The video is called "So, Papa, How Do You Like the New Ipad We Got You?" I thought it was hilarious and thought you might enjoy it too. It's in German, but you don't have to speak the language to understand what's happening here.
Enjoy and have a happy Monday! I'm actually getting to the binding of this quilt today. Maybe some finished quilts to come this week. Yippee!
Ok...Pat shared another one in the comments...not really to do with change, but so funny I had to add it.
It's called "Paper is not dead."
Hope this continues the giggles...
