Alright, so apart from death andtaxes, the only other certainty in life
and work is „change‟; and as hard as
we might try (and some people reallytry hard) it cannot be avoided.So what is it about change thatunnerves and discomforts the majorityof people so much? True, thatuncertainty often makes life morestressful and worrying and this in turnaffects our behaviour, attitude andmindset negatively; forcing people torevert to defensive learnedbehaviours. More often than not,human nature compels us to devotegreat energy and effort to protectthe status quo (and our own perceived security) at all costs.
But is change always as bad or as threatening as our reactions to it mightsuggest?What if our energies were focused upon seeking the opportunities presented bythe inexorable process of change rather than railing against it?
Make no mistake, nobody is saying that it‟s
always easy or enjoyable,particularly in the current climate of escalating costs, reduced wages, joblosses, organisational upheaval
and worse. But for a moment, let‟s look at this
issue from a different perspective.In this collection of apocryphal blog* articles you will discover:That Einstein was wrong; Not everyone agrees on where you are starting from;The allure of trees; Slide rules are no longer used in exams; 3% of the populationare naturally dissatisfied; Every organisation has Superheroes;
