We humans tend to create new stuff more or less in an incremental way. We tend to create and then build things, analyze what we have built and compensate the flaws mainly on the exterior. Polishing here and there a little, small non-scary stuff. Often because we are scared to admit we made a judgement error when we designed something. These types of fears tend to keep us back from a more radical renewal (recreation). So to really re-create asks for more courage and true leadership. You sometimes need to decompose what you have created earlier, in order to recreate it into a new, better suiting style, more fit-for-purpose. When Marylin Monroe† still lived she once said: “sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together”. She was so right! Sometimes we deliberately need to let ‘good’ things fall apart so we can recreate better things. Then the trick is, to show respect for the ‘good’ things, agree with the ones involved that there is a better way do things and go for it together. So decomposition need not be scary at all, if we do it with the idea of a better win-win for all in mind, we can even enjoy the tearing apart of the old and the recreation of the new. Good luck with your quest for finding out your own beauties of decomposition and recreation!
