You can't avoid change. But how you gonna deal with it?

Am I the only one who is tired of hearing about the Presidential election?  I cannot wait for it to be over!  Apparently more therapists than ever are seeing patients who are stressed out by the campaign.  I am not surprised.

It has gotten me thinking about change...and hopefully will give you some inspiration for your business or career.



The challenge question for my exemption from Freshman English in college was "write about change."  The kid who wrote about getting quarters back from the vending machine was automatically exempted for creativity.  Me?  I placed out too, but wrote something ponderous and philosophical about trends and cycles.  (Where do you think those ancient blue books have gone?)

I have a dear friend who has been part of a tech startup for nearly seven years---she was one of the first 200 people hired and has been part of it's phenomenal growth and been part of the process of their going public.  When she recently gave me a tour, she was actually a little sad.  A reorganization had moved her to a new department and work wasn't as much fun as it used to be.  I was not surprised.  Success has brought about change, which isn't always easy.  (I suggested maybe she'd be happier working at another start-up even though she has an undying loyalty to this firm.)

For me personally, I shuttered my website-builder business last month.  This was very difficult, since I have personal relationships with many of the 100+ clients who were using my site building system.  (they've been gently handed off to my former business partner, Kevin McGillivray)  But it was the right thing to do:  with all the simple site builders out there now, it was time for me to focus on my strengths:  coaching and consulting.  Change is not always easy, but it is necessary.

I like this Charles Darwin quote:  It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.

Sometimes it helps to have an objective, educated outsider to help you understand how to evolve your business or career. 

Can I help you?
