Change You Can Believe In: Weekend PollBy: wheatmeister
Try it – you’ll like it! If we aren’t moving forward, we’re moving backward.
Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke. Don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater.
People like stability, but also crave variety. We like to drive change, but we don’t like when changes happen to us. We want to be in front of the curve, not behind the eight ball. With change, whether we like it or not is often a matter of timing as well as personal preference.
