“Dramatic Personal Change”

“Once there was a time when you could experience change and then return to a period of relative stability.   In that era, as things settled down, you could thoughtfully plan and get ready for another change.  …  The reality today is that there is no … rest and no getting ready.   The situation reminds us of the story about the little girl who comes home from school one day and asks her mother (today it certainly could be her father), ‘Why does Daddy work so late every night?’   The mother gives a sympathetic smile and replies, ‘Well, honey, Daddy just doesn’t have time to finish all his work during the day.’   In her infinite wisdom the little girl says, ‘Then why don’t they put him in a slower group?’   Alas, there are no slower groups.   Constant change is a way of life in organizations today.”     (Ken Blanchard, Leading at a Higher Level)

“The significant challenges we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”     (Albert Einstein)

“The first step in a ‘dramatic organizational change program’ is obvious – dramatic personal change!”  (RG)

Change!  Many people think the word, change, is a dirty word.  (Well … except the baby that needs a diaper change.)

Why do people think of it as a dirty word?  Because change makes people uncomfortable; it takes us out of our comfort zone.  We are comfortable doing things and then – BOOM! – things change! 

Remember, one thing is certain – in today’s time, change occurs quickly and regularly so we must be change-resilient and accept it when it comes. 

Whenever any change is being implemented in a business, at home or somewhere in your life, you must first look inward and make that dramatic personal change for things to work.
