The Hard Part of Change is Letting Go

Thursday November 17, 2016 #845

“It’s easy to come up with new ideas; the hard part is letting go of what worked for you two years ago, but will soon be out of date.”

~Roger von Oech

845

As we are all working to find the best path through our ever-changing professional and personal lives, we are learning new technology tools, new philosophies of leadership and personal development, new political realities, and more.  The challenge isn’t a lack of compelling ideas.  The challenge is having the courage and strength of conviction to drop outdated tools and philosophies.  Facts actually DO change and we need to be ready to move our understanding of the “truth” to allow for a rapidly changing context and the need to accept ambiguity.  What do you need to let go of that will give you space for taking on new ideas?  And are you learning from this experience so that you are ready to let go of what works today when tomorrow brings new information and changing dynamics?  Try not to be scared or overwhelmed by this but rather view this new world with excitement and a determination to be a champion of today’s multi-level, ever-changing playing field.
