We all know change is disruptive. It’s especially disruptive if we think it’s happening to us rather than when we believe we are part of the change.
Whether it’s leaving a job, starting a new job, changing your business model, automating something that’s been manual, buying a new phone, technology, appliance, car or a pandemic, things are no longer as they were.
How we manage the learning curve into the future largely depends on several things:
- Do I trust myself with the change(s)?
- Am I a happy learner, excited about the opportunity the change provides?
- Am I coming from a context of abundance, appreciation and curiosity?
- Am I willing to accept help?
- Can I learn:
- In a reasonable timeframe to maintain my competence, effectiveness and productivity?
- and let go of what I “know” (or what I think I know) while also remaining confident in the change?
If you answered yes to these questions, proceed. If at any point it’s not working, you can always change your mind.
