Change Happens … It’s Time for a Do Over
Change is an everyday occurrence. It happens, whether by choice or involuntary. Some changes arise from chaos; some form crisis; some from not have the skills to tackle a job; and some are just created from the roll of life’s dice. Some change is gentle; others with hurricane force.
Here are 4 tips to navigate your way through change.
1. People … your relationships weigh heavy in dealing with unwelcome change. Friends, Colleagues and Family become your tether lines.
2. Skills … what are yours? Most of us have already acquired the necessary tools to carve through the waves that are encountered. If you need to acquire new ones, get signed up.
3. Remain True …what brought you to where you were before the change came into play? With no exceptions, be myopic about who you are, be true to you.
4. Action … deal with it. Burying your head; or fantasizing about the “good old days” does nothing. is here. Acknowledge what has happened and start asking, “What’s next? If I had a magic wand, what would I really like to be doing? What tools do I have that I can use to find a plus? When change hits, huge growth can happen.
