Interesting the difference ONE word can make…
Thousands of years ago, the philosopher Heraclitus wrote, “The only thing that is constant is change.”
It’s a statement that remains just as true today as it was back then. Yet somehow, we still often manage to fail miserably at dealing with and managing change.
If this year has not been Change on steroids I don’t know what more extreme change can be. There is no person who has not been impacted as a result of this pandemic. Change is something we all have to get used to.
The late Stephen Covey said there were three constants in life: Change, Choice and Principles.
While change is indeed constant… choice is also key – the choice of attitude, our effort, how much we care, how long we will try, to whom we will listen for help and guidance, our habits, routines etc. We even choose whether we will choose – since not choosing is a choice in itself.
Principles are the great stabiliser, these are the ideas, thoughts, and commitments that embrace to help guide us through a world of change and point us to consistent choices. They reveal our character and what we value in life.
