“The Only constant thing in this world is change”– I don’t know who said that famous phrase, but actually it is really true.
What does change have to do with Michael Jackson and Communication??A lot actually!hehe! First let me discuss Michael Jackson.
Michael Jackson was a cute black kid when he first started out his career with the great Jackson 5; singing and dancing alongside with his brothers. He was just so cute back then; doing ABC, I’ll be there and I want you back (my favorite jackson 5 songs).Then change occurred to him, going solo because of his rising career and that decision of CHANGE in his career made Jackson one of the greatest artist ever lived. His change, his evolution was really remarkable, I was watching his videos for the past 3 or 4 days and when I was browsing through all these videos I was just amazed at how he CHANGED, from his dance moves, to his singing style and even his physical appearance was really changing (his color from black to white, his nose, his eyes, his everything!). Although some changes may be not that good at all, Michael Jackson was a perfect example of change being not really that good. His change from black to white and all other changes that he has done was or maybe the reason of the downfall of his career, from jacko to wacko. Change made him great but also change made him fall.
Communication is fast changing, it evolved really fast. Yesterday, in our 152 class we discussed the BIS model of the evolution of communication and it was great to see that change is also evident in communication and like the change in Michael Jackson, from Jackson 5 to going solo, the change in communication was really a good one. It brought communication to a different level that it made people think, it made companies think, that “hey communication is really important, why not invest on it!”. But like what happened to Michael Jackson, can change make communication fall?? I hope not. I still do hope and pray that it can evolve to a greater change that it can sustain its growth, that it can be the Great Michael Jackson forever and not the wacko jacko.
