Change for the sake of change is wrong. Going against change for the sake of no change is also wrong.
“That is how it’s always been done” is not a good enough reason. By saying that, you’re not automatically admitting something is being done wrong, but you’re doing a terrible job of properly explaining why it’s done that way. Reverting to the past for validation is a sign of shaky confidence and a lack of appreciation for explaining oneself.
Things should never be done differently just because they’ve been done for so long. However, doing something for so long is also not a reason to deny the possibility of change. If something works and there are reasons for why it works, beautiful. However, previous existence is not a reason, but a crutch.
I only ever do something differently if I feel it will be better than what was already done. If it’s the same, then it’s not good enough. However, I try and question why I’m doing something the way I am before each time I do it. It’s a habit, a routine and sometimes a curse. I question things and I expect explanations and answers. If I don’t get them, I can’t function. “Just because” or “it is what it is” are thoughts that do not process in my mind.
I don’t get satisfaction out of doing something different or changing something. I get satisfaction out of something being Good™ or Great™. I enjoy when I question something and someone tells me exactly why it is the way it is. I love that. My goal is never to change something, just to understand it.
