Stagnation should not be an option in life, but it is. As humans we must change, grow, develop, and mature. Failure to do so leads to stagnation, which in turn leads to boredom, failure, and frustration. The world constantly changes around us. The last fifteen months of the pandemic has led to even more change than normal, drastic, and unprecedented change. If we do not adapt to change, we will be left behind. That is true as much in our work world as it is in our home life. The business world of instant communications, corporate transparency and the world-wide economy is drastically different than it was just a few short years ago. In the same way, raising kids is not what it was just 5 years ago, never mind 25 years ago.
It is important that we embrace change in order to keep up with the ever-changing world, but more importantly to grow personally. We cannot control the change that takes place around us but changing ourselves is a choice. We can choose to change for the good. Below is a great quote on the topic of change and why it is so important in our lives.
"Change is the Law of Life. Those who only look to the past or present are certain to miss the future."
- John F. Kennedy
