How to Get More Comfortable with Change

Written By: Catherine Morgan | Comments Off on How to Get More Comfortable with Change

comfort during changeWould anyone argue that we’re in a time of pretty much constant change? Learning to navigate the ever-changing business landscape is a critical skill for success as a small business owner.

Carol’s recent post “Shift Your Mindset and Actions to Embrace Change” on entrepreneur.com begins:

“There is only one thing that is constant in life — and that is change. The reality is, we don’t like change. We especially don’t like change when things were going well, and we now don’t know what the future holds and / or when we have to take on risk and go out of our comfort zone.

However, if you want to be successful, being willing and able to change is no longer an option. It’s not a “nice to have” skill — it’s a “need to have” skill. Those who aren’t willing to embrace change, particularly entrepreneurs, will find themselves left behind.

Being left behind is more of a reality than ever nowadays because of technology. While it took 75 years for 100 million people to use the telephone, the cellular phone took only 16 years to get that level of adoption. Facebook only needed just more than four years to hit that 100 million user mark, and the game Candy Crush did so in just over a year’s time.
