For the last 6 years as a Business Process Improvement Coordinator, I have repeated this phrase many, many times. Usually to others, but sometimes to myself, as words of encouragement during a time of change.
Times of change get us out of our comfort zone and gives us the opportunity to learn new things! When we learn new things, we grow! We grow in knowledge, we can grow in confidence, and we can even grow financially.
Technology is a huge catalyst for change for most people. However, there are some people, like my dad, who live afraid of it to a certain degree and will never make a purchase online. I, on the other hand, have embraced it and run 2 business with a device that I hold in my hand! Technology allows us the streamline and accomplish tasks quickly and on the go if needed.
While change can be hard during the learning curve, usually looking back over the journey it was not that hard. We have three capability to adjust, if we allow ourselves to do so.
Today, I am changing my life. Today, it will be hard to say goodbye to coworkers who are like family. However, thanks to technology, they really won’t be that far away. Today, change is hard, but I know tomorrow will be good. I need to be reminded of these words of encouragement.
