One of the hardest things to do with our careers and lives is change.
We usually THINK we can change. We point to places in life we have changed. Sadly, we usually miss how much of our life is the same old same old for years or decades – even things we should want to change.
Let's face it, it's hard to change. At the same time, in this changing world and in this altering job market, change is vital. I ended up moving cross-country for my career – trust me, I know change.
Also, let us be honest, change is difficult, challenging, and disrupting. We don't WANT to change, especially if we've got good routine going or feel comfortable. Many of us in fact have had our fill of change, thank you very much.
Still, change isn't going away. My advice? Practice change.
