I am starting off 2010 with my very own blog. The title of my blog is derived from a well known saying by Yogi Berra: “If you do not know where you are going you’ll end up some place else”. For those not familiar, Yogi Berra was a US baseball player. His often quoted statements tend to mystify the obvious. They always trigger a surprising perspective on things.
I like looking at the obvious from different perspectives. Like asking myself how useful it is to know where you going and what can be the value of ending-up some place else? For me appreciating diversity and organizational change is about knowing where you want to go, and indeed one has to aim not to end-up some place else. But to get there you need to keep the road open: diversity, change and learning need space. And then again, eventually you may end-up some place else after all …..
on a blog for example. The world of blogging is new to me. I was raised with grammophones and typewriters and I am what they nowadays call a digital migrant. But like any migrant I will try to make it work for me.
