Back in 2002, when I had a somewhat important job in Corporate America, my company moved from old rented offices into our own state-of-the-art building. Smoothly moving an entire corporation from Point A to Point B, even within the same city, can be a daunting venture so the powers that be (CEO & friends) decided every employee needed to attend the Who Moved My Cheese seminar on effectively dealing with change. (You can find the movie on YouTube if you’re really curious.)
I get it. Some people don’t like change and it freaks them out. Others may not like it, but they deal with the situation as best they can. Me? I love change. I thrive off change. I crave change. In fact, ten minutes into my mandated “dealing with change” seminar … they kicked me out of the class (because I was a mite bit excited) and told me to go back to work. “Yes, I would be fine with the transition,” they said. No shit.
Today, life is stagnate. It’s killing me.
“A person needs new experiences. They jar something deep inside, allowing him to grow. Without change something sleeps inside us and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.” ~Dune (1981)
