The Process of Change

“People go through four stages before any revolutionary development: 1) It's nonsense; don't waste my time. 2) It's interesting, but not important. 3) I always said it was a good idea. 4) I thought of it first.”

– Arthur C. Clarke

Each of us, regardless of the industry we work in; or the point where we are in life or career, is always at one of these stages.  Understand that this is a cycle – by the time you are saying , “I thought of it first,” you are likely to say “It's nonsense” about something else.

The only certainty in life is change.  How we approach change – our attitude towards the inevitability of change is what counts:

“We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.”

– Bertha Calloway
