Stop Demanding Something “New”

There’s nothing new or different about the appeal of the new and the different. If the status quo is unacceptable, the answer is not novelty but improvement–concrete, measurable improvement guided by compelling values.

New isn’t better, just new. Diverse is better. Experienced is better. Principled is better.

Let’s choose for those criteria.

  1. mm…..i dunno. New is exciting.

    yeah, maybe when I chose something novel just because it’s novel, I’m not acting out of my highest self.

    but new is fun!

    concrete measurable and compelling is kind of a drag, Jiminey.
