Change is the one constant, guaranteed thing to happen in life. Just think about all of the changes you may have already been through: divorce, illness, starting a company, losing a loved one, becoming a parent, moving, changing jobs, graduating and so on. The core of who you are is wrapped up in changes you’ve made and faced.
And yet, we all find change to be hard— we resist it, are overwhelmed or don’t know how to make it easier. The good news is that while we can’t avoid change, we can become better at navigating the transitions that arise in our lives, personally and professionally.
