Ready or Not Change is Coming

Change can be hard. Change can be easy. You see, our brains are weird in such a way to protect us. We learn of change in a particular area of our lives and our brain’s first reaction is: “I don’t like the sound of that.” We scan our memory for every bit of information it knows regarding change and many times the information comes back as: “No, please don’t change!”

What we are basically saying to ourselves is that I am comfortable where I am at, I am fearful what this change can potentially bring and this change may take me deep out of my comfort zone. Change itself is not good or bad, it just is. Deep in the recess of our minds we develop a tag or category of it being a positive or negative event. Two people, two different interpretations of the same event, two conclusions.

William Pollard summed up change best: “Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.”
