5 strategies for change

3 0 0

I’ve been talking about the importance of embracing change for a long time. I even gave my TEDx talk on why humans resist change.

Humans have outdated programing that causes them to prefer what they already know over the unknown. You may have leaned into your ancient coding and thought you could get through life staying within your comfort zone.

My parents took this approach when home computers became commonplace. Although they were probably about the same age I am now, they decided they were too old to learn something new. Computers were not for them.

Ten years later, they realized avoidance was not the right path. They bought a Mac and began the education process. Being 10 years older made learning a new technology more difficult, especially as they weren’t used to taking on new skills.

Can you relate? Our ancient ancestors only changed when they were forced into it and you carry that same programing. The only way to hack the existing code is to be aware it is there.
