As we “go” through life there are lots of changes. These can be with our work, activities and even loved ones. I use the term “go” because things do change and if we don’t adapt it is difficult to progress. We have to learn to adapt. There is a time to go with the flow and a time to take action on what is given to you.
An example of this is when you are driving down the road and someone changes lanes. Not that bad except you are right where they are changing lanes. To react would maybe put you into another lane with a car and an accident. To take action might be to slow down and honk your horn to let them know you are there. By taking this action you adapted to the situation.
Here is another example… you made your day around plans with a friend. Now that the day has arrived you cant get a hold of them. Your day is essentially on hold… or is it? How about at work? Your tasks and or your calender is set and then all the sudden a major project or fire lands on your desk… what do you do?
It took me a while to adjust to this concept. I always remember great times with students. Glory days of how things used to be. But that was then… and this is now.
Life throws us many curve balls… when it does, make a change… adapt and flow to the next progression in your life.
