Successful people build each other up, they motivate, inspire and push each other. Unsuccessful people just hate, blame and complain.    Flowers only bloom when they are ready. People are the same way. You cannot rush or force them open, just because you think it's time. Be patient. - Timber Hawkeye    We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. - Albert Einstein    Success is to be measured, not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles that one has overcome while trying to succeed. - Bookert T. Washington    Be solution driven. Treat the disease, not the symptoms by targeting the source of the problem or issue.    In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins... not through strength, but through persistence. - Buddha    Are you interested in changing, or are you committed to change?

Your Change Parameters must be clearly defined… always!

 

To successfully deal with change, without reliable change parameters (i.e a result, outcome or target) in mind, is much like trying to successfully navigate a ship in stormy seas to reach a specific destination …without a rudder!

Without a rudder to steer the ship, you will be thrown from side to side, forced in all kind of directions, pushed into unwise situations and reaching your “destination” will be awfully difficult, if not completely impossible.

It, therefore, is imperative that you have a definite goal or plan (i.e. a target) in mind, because…

  • a “destiny” without accompanied actions, just leads nowhere or achieve nothing in the end, AND…
  • actions without a “destiny“, eventually turns into confusion, total chaos and you will end up in “a place” where you do not intent nor wish to be.

¬†Attempting to embark on a change management project, without a definite goal, target or destiny already designated, is a sure recipe for “not getting what you want or aiming for in life“. Without a definite destiny, you don’t control change, it controls you… quite often, against your own better judgement.
