No Microwave

People can change. I am amazed at how many people don’t believe this. This disbelief is why grudges are held and relationships are lost. It’s also why people give up on others too quickly. I wonder if the reason so few of us believe that people can change is because we misunderstand the amount of time it truly takes to develop someone. There is no microwave option when developing solid habits. The best developers of people have incredible patience with watching slow, incremental growth. Teams with high turnover show little patience for growth and seem to want readymade teammates. Great teams appreciate the factor that time has in the positive change of the individual.
