How to Overcome Status Quo Bias?
Status Quo Bias may be an inherent behavior or cognitive bias in human beings with a resistance to change.
At a corporate level
it is a major ailment. When a corporate CEO makes some visionary changes; people may show resistance to change
An account of status quo bias in humans
has been portrayed in the book "Who moved my cheese
" by Spencer Johnson. The essence of the book is - "Things constantly change and we must adapt".
But HOW can we overcome status quo bias at a personal level?
I think, with good self discipline and being highly effective, people can overcome status quo bias. Stephen Covey's - "7 habits of highly effective people
" tells how to be perfect as a human. This creates laxity in humans for accepting change. In my view, this is the best way of overcoming status quo bias.
