“The real cost of change is emotional, not economic. The shift here is from an economic measure of cost to a personal measure of will. … This is the more important discussion and leads to a more realistic consideration of whether or not the price is too high.”
– Peter Block, The Answer to How is Yes
So the question is: “What’s it worth to you?”
How much are you willing to change? YOU personally. Not the company, not your colleagues, not “the system.” YOU.
If you’re not willing to commit the “personal measure of will” that’s required to make the change you say you want to make, then the price is too high and you shouldn’t waste your time.
It’s worth the time to ask yourself: “What is it worth to me?”
