That’s what musician Trey Gunn called it in a blog post that’s now vanished from his website. Rewiring the systems is a process that prepares you for change.
You reevaluate what you’re doing, how you’re doing it, and why. Then, you make tweaks or wholesale changes to all of that. It can be scary, but change (even if it’s just a small tweak) can be beneficial.
As I do every five years or so, I’m currently trying to rewire my systems. At least, trying to rewire parts of those systems. It’s taking a bit more effort and time than I expected, but I’m hoping those changes will have far-reaching consequences.
