Julie Alexander a professional coach speaks on “Don’t park too long or change will find you”. What a great saying! When I heard Julie deliver this it resonated on so many levels.
The pace of change in the world that impacts on personal and business life is speeding up. Yet it is human nature to search out certainty. When we hold on to certainty we think we are doing the right thing for our survival, however we find our resilience is at risk, as we are not constantly adapting.
The harder we hold on to comfort, the more difficult we become for people around us to deal with, as we are resistant to the help or guidance that will ensure we make the transition.
When we challenge ourselves continually, we are happier, more fulfilled and our resilience increases. This helps us to understand and deal with anxiety.
For me self deprecating humour is something I find really useful, as when we laugh at ourselves others connect and understand our pain and opportunities.
Today one of my team reminded me when discussing change in business of that great book “who moved my cheese?” By Dr Spencer Johnson which is all about adapting to change. A must read for anyone who is seeking comfort in a fast changing world.
The greatest skill in the 21st century is constantly adapting to the world as it evolves at a faster pace than any time in history. When we embrace the changes we can enjoy and evolve, when we resist we become obsolete with no relevance.
Don’t park to long or change will find you.
