Many years ago I had a work colleague who constantly noted that one had to trust the process. This colleague so greatly believed in that perspective that their wall had posters encouraging others to similarly believe such perspectives. It annoyed me to no end. Why should I trust the process? Context is everything. I was reminded of such a perspective this week and I was greatly annoyed yet again.
Processes may be rigged. Processes may not be transparent. Processes may not be fully thought out. It’s hard to blindly trust the process as such.
But one can trust the process if you don’t do so from the sidelines. You need to get involved and be engaged. You have to be vested and bought into what needs to occur. And then it can all come together.
