Change and Retention

Change and Retention

We can change things around us or retain them, from our residences to our friends, from our hobbies to our outlook. Those are choices.

Yet we often allow retention to take place from shear inertia, and change to be foist upon  us by others. So we go to the same places with the same people out of habit, and we suddenly are forced to change when the client, government, weather, or our peers insist we do.

Make conscious, reasoned, selfish decisions about what you want to keep and what you  want to change (or jettison). You can’t change the weather, but you can change what you do about it. Organizations and people become outmoded and passé when they try to bring old baggage into new times, refuse to pack new baggage,  and expect others to adapt to them.

Just ask Sears. Or Macy’s. Or Blackberry. Or Pan Am and TWA. Or Hillary Clinton.
