Everyone accepts the need for change due to our changing world, but when it comes to doing something to create that change, we begin to rationalize. Rational lies—really, irrational lies—are what they are. Doing the same thing over and over may be comforting, but it doesn’t lead to change. That’s the hard part, doing something different, something new.

That reluctance stretches worldwide from governments and society to the individual. We don’t have much input to leaders who are afraid of lobbies and interest groups or governments that have irrational policies, but we do have control of ourselves. Long ago my eighth-grade teacher said,  “The biggest room in the world is the room for improvement.” She went on to explain that nothing is perfection, which is an unattainable destination. She spoke of the journey that we are all on.

“The room for improvement”—I heard then as an attempt at humor, but for me it has evolved toward an almost universal truth. Education doesn’t stop with school; every experience is a learning experience.
