Why do we, as a people, hate change? We are happy to quickly walk, ok RUN, away from change. A lot of articles have been written on change, but here is my $.02.
Change is scary, whether it is good or bad. It can be especially overwhelming if it occurs in your personal and professional life at the same time.
This year I had a baby, bought a new house and am going through a transition at work where our company is being integrated into the company that bought us in 2013. All of these things are good, but hard none the less, because it is change.
Here are some things that help me with change and hopefully will be useful to you.
1. Whatever you feel is ok – Don’t let anyone diminish your feelings. Feel what you need to about the change.
2. Be patient and persistent – You know what you want….get there!
3. Create a plan – Figure out what you need to do in handling the change and then break it up into manageable parts, if you can.
4. Don’t let up – Keep at it. You will get there.
Change is constant. Or as Yoda would put it: Always in motion is the future.
