Change. Is it positive or negative? It depends!

Change is part of the human condition. Without change, we would not progress, discover, or develop. Change is paramount to any improvements we seek.

I’m reminded of two sage sayings:

If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always got.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Many individuals want their situation to be different—but without actually implementing any real changes. For example, imagine someone voices their intentions for dramatic improvements—both personally and at their company. Within just a short period of time, they have had enough change! Their intention of extraordinary growth directly conflicted with their desire to actually make the effort to change.
