Change



There comes a time where change is necessary, no matter how used you are to something or how iconic something has become.  Change is a good thing in many ways, it opens the door to things that once would not be considered and allows for new ideas to infiltrate and old stale ways to have new life breathed into them.  While change can also be in some ways negative and the fear of the unknown promotes fear, change is to be embraced even if only for the reason that those who do not change are destined to eventually fail. 

A few days ago I got to see the new look of American Airlines up close and personal.  I feel that it is a good step for this iconic legacy carrier to embrace the future as they emerge from a long bankruptcy.  I feel that the new look is respectful of the history of the company and a gentle nod to the country it represents.

I agree about change...although I don't much care what color AA paints their planes! :-)

We just made a big change, moving from a 55+ gated community back into a house in the real world and it was a wonderful thing for us!

Brilliantly stated. And a lovely shot of the new branding for AA. I'm hopeful for them--fresh start with fresh ideas. It's that 'open' bit that tends to snag me up--that means I have to let go of what I've been holding on to that potentially worked just fine for the hope that different will mean MORE/BETTER 'just fine'. Yikes!

In AA's case--didn't work so fine so change or die.
Oh, and I know THAT one intimately!
