A fat kid in a size small shirt

The half-day solve-everything event: why do we over and again try to do this to ourselves? Change is a process. What we are seeking will not be done in a day, but will take work beyond that. We are asking too much of the human organism to ask that people resolve all the things they will want in a few hours. We need sleeping on it time. We need conversations that can go deeply. We need reflection time. We need continuing conversation. Trying to force things into a time frame that is too small is like forcing a fat kid into a size small shirt: buttons are gonna pop, the shirt will be ruined, and the kid will not be clothed.
