Things Change

In 315 AD, public restrooms consisted of wooden seats with holes dug beneath them and no separation barriers. Public restrooms could serve 144 people at a time.


In the 19th century revolving-saws were used to cut trees, but also circa 1926 were used by German doctors to cut through bones. Ouch! But it was a change. Right?


The production of clothing/garment-making was largely done by hand until 1790 when the first model of a sewing machine was designed and powered by a hand crank. Probably very welcomed by the “fashion set”.


So, now that you are flinching…


Let’s leave the toilets, the machines and the bones behind. Lets look at coming to grips with the “challenges posed by the anticipation of change”.  Change is difficult for some of us to really embrace in a positive way. So, what might open-us-up to the benefits of addressing change? Here are some ideas on the subject from people you may know of:

·       “In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first.” -Jimi Hendrix, Rock Legend

·       "Change before you have to." -Jack Welch

·       “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change” -Albert Einstein

·       “Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” -John D. Rockefeller

·       “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”  Rumi

·       “A bend in the road is not the end of the road…unless you fail to make the turn.”—Helen Keller

·       “It’s only after you’ve stepped out of your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow and transform.” Roy Bennett


So, there you go. The myth is busted. Babies aren’t the only people who like “change”.
