Our lives usually usually move along quite predictably until they don’t. It could be a favorite pet dying, a home being destroyed, or a serious illness. The commonality is that our lives will never again be the same. Change can be both a destroyer or a booster to a new heights. The most important part of change is managing change.
For most, the hardest thing to realize is that our emotions and beliefs literally do not matter when making critical decisions. We will experience these emotions; that is a fact. Failure to recognize that belief is not necessarily fact is another endemic problem faced by nearly all. However, the ability to separate the decision making process from one’s emotions and beliefs is imperative to successful change management.
Change must be stoically faced. Change is neither friend nor enemy. It is.
