It it's not broke, please fix it!!!

You know that old saying, "if it's not broke, don't fix it"?  Well, that's dumb. 

This is the kind of thinking that never moves anybody forward.  It just keeps people, relationships, systems, businesses, churches, homes and ministries right where they are.

We wouldn't have a lot of the amazing things in our world today unless somebody decided to fix what wasn't broken.

Only by trying to fix what's not broken do we advance.  But it takes brave people to go there.

God is the only one who can fix us! But we can do our part.

The mentality of "If it's not broke, don't fix it" is about as dumb as this statement "this is how we have always done it!" I dislike both very much!

If I did not work so hard to help Marcus get fixed where would we be- He was broke and needed fixed. I love the brave statement - cause this took a whole lot of courage for both of us- and see where we are today since we are fixing the broken

Love this PD. It might not be broken but it also might not be even close to what it could be lol. Jesus died so we can THRIVE not just get by and be functional, heck with being functional I want to do much better than that lol.

Also on the everyday practical side I agree that improvement on anything probably will not happen unless we avoid this approach and look at ways on how we can make things better.
