The danger of building a new structure on an old system. This is like putting old wine in a new wine skin and vice versa. When you want to build a structure, a new one, you do not build on an old foundation, except if its the same old plan.
The most logical thing to do then is to strengthen the old foundation, or rebuild a new one altogether.
In respect of a failing company, it would be logical to examine the system in place, revamp it as needed and or put a new system in place for all aspect of the business as deem fit.
For my dear Sears Canada Inc, it was the other way around. Who put makeup on a dirty face, without first cleaning it up? Sears did!! Pulling down physical structure while leaving the old failing system in place. I knew it was a disaster waiting to happen, so did many!! Yet, it hurt so bad!!!!
Why was there no alternative to what happened?
Is similarity in your life, family, community, and so on! Are there so much activities going on with little effect and you know so? Examine the system in place! For something new to happen, to take place, the old system of doing things has to change? There must be a shift in attitude, orientation, and mind set, in order to garner a projected result.
Lord, help us! We cannot continue doing the same things and expect a different result. Yes, we are putting aesthetics in place with so much funfare on dripping and sour wound! Lord help us to revamp our system, heal our business, career, life, marriage, community, organization, Church, and nation we pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen
