I often wonder what difference writing posts on social platforms can make. Is it just self indulgent shouting into the wind?
I remember being hugely upset by the changes that Jon Birt, Director General at the time, was making to the BBC I loved. It felt like he was doing them to us. We were victims – and acted like it. We felt defenceless.
But then it dawned on me that things were only happening because he said they should, often enough and to enough people. To the right people. At the right time. If he had said nothing, nothing would have happened. We all had that potential, but he did something with it.
This is why I now realise that all change happens one step at a time, one conversation at a time, one person at a time. There is no other way for it to happen.
This is why, no matter how small the chance of massive change happening as a result of writing your blog post, one thing is for sure. Nothing will happen if you don’t.
