Change or perish!

Change or perish!

Change is the only constant or so goes the old cliche! If you have been following my blog you know I love cliches!

In this world there are two types of people. Ones (the majority) who strive for stability and constancy which by default provides a comfortable life. And then there are those crazy few who seek out and thrive on change. Those are the few that change the world!

This article (link above) is one of the best that I have read on what change leaders are all about. “Today’s landscape is a Darwinian world. The winners and losers of this global competition are determined by one factor: change. Today’s competitors are moving so fast, that products and jobs get quickly commoditized or even eliminated. Those individuals and companies that identify new opportunities and take the necessary actions to capture them will survive. Those who learn to do it over and over will thrive”

If you happen to read it and roll your eyes you are probably one of the majority. There is nothing wrong with that. Pushing boundaries is not for everyone.

But if you are one of those few that perked up while reading this, then you have the power to make a difference to the world that you touch. Don’t take this gift for granted because it is not for everyone.

Pretty sure Gates, Bezos, Brin and other innovators won’t roll their eyes if they read this!

Here is hoping that the minority embrace the gift given to them and some of the majority get out of their comfort zone and seek this gift!
