I heard someone say recently that you need to anticipate change to be ahead. It was someone famous trying to inspire a gathering of entrepreneurs.
Got me thinking ??? if you could indeed anticipate change, would it be ???change??? as you think of it normally? How can it?
When you look at how the dictionary defines change :-
– to become different
– to become altered or modified
if you could anticipate or predict how you would indeed change, it wouldn???t feel like change would it?
The thing about change is that it grabs you, shocks or surprises you. You are ultimately caught off guard and are unprepared. It is this state of flux and indecision that gives it, its characteristics.
If you could anticipate change, you wouldn???t be caught off guard.
I believe that you don???t anticipate change in that way.
I believe that you think of how things can change. You consider that there may be a view different from your own, that you could be wrong, that there could be another solution/approach/perspective and you accept that this view exists instead of fight it. And when you accept it, you find a way to work around it.
I think that you don???t anticipate change so much as you respond to it quickly, with courage and gusto and decisiveness.
