"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change". -Charles Darwin
"Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely".-Karen Kaiser Clark
Change is an obvious and undeniable fact of life. Change simply means moving forward and not standing still. The most successful individuals and organizations are those that don't run from change, but turn it to their advantage. Changing, of course, is a matter of definition. It could mean opening your mind to a new concept or causing you to look at the commonplace from a different perspective or with new insight. It doesn't have to be revolutionary to be significant.
Your goal is to help yourself and others, in some way, to modify your perceptions, thinking and behaviors.
One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is the courage to meet change as a friend rather than as a feared enemy. If you try to ignore change, you'll likely get knocked off balance. Getting angry, running away or wishful thinking are a waste of time.
This is the age where managing change is everyone's responsibility. Think of it as your personal challenge.
