"The combination of new technologies, outdated systems, and the global pandemic have ushered in a rate of change that far exceeds any other period in recorded human history.
AND IT SEEMS TO KEEP SPEEDING UP.
So what do we do about it?
I hear a lot of people talking about the ‘good ole days’... or talking about how things ‘should be’.
But this is small minded thinking. There are only two sane choices when it comes to dealing with our reality:
As the ‘Serenity Prayer’ says, we need the “...serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

TRUER WORDS HAVE SELDOM BEEN SPOKEN.
Since we can’t really change all the change that is happening, we must accept it. And the next logical conclusion is that we must change ourselves (and our businesses) so that we thrive in the shifting landscape and remain relevant in the future.
ABOVE ALL ELSE, LEARN TO RELAX AND ENJOY YOUR LIFE. THINGS CHANGE SO QUICKLY THAT WE OFTEN FORGET TO TRULY EXPERIENCE THE PRESENT MOMENT.
Don’t chase the future. Embrace it. And learn to love the opportunity to change and grow in response to what your environment is telling you."
