Want to Make a Change in Process? Here is Lewin’s Change Theory to Help
Hi, SEers John with you again today. In the past, I have discussed some of the theories around being the best we can be. Today I would like to get into a classic psychological theory that a writer may find helpful should a desire to change some aspects of the writing life be present now or arise in the future.
First, let me set the stage. We will be talking about a fictitious writer. This writer has a set routine when it comes to working on writing projects. This routine has helped keep the writer working in a comfort zone that has in the past produced satisfactory outputs. Suddenly, our writer finds that the writing output has declined significantly. The cause of the decline is not a lack of trying or significant changes in the work routine. At times the writer seems to be at a loss for words. Although the dedication is there, the quality and quantity of the work have declined over time.
