Change – How To Survive Tip 4

What is your attitude to change? Can you change your attitude to change….?

Before you can do the latter you need to be clear about what you think. Ponder these questions:

Change Questions

  • How do you feel about change?
  • Do you regularly initiate new things, have new thoughts on old subjects?
  • What’s your instinctive reaction when you hear something is changing?
  • How do you feel when you visit an old haunt where all has changed?
  • How do you feel if the office furniture gets moved?
  • What things in your life do you believe to be sacrosanct i.e. must never be tampered with?
  • What things can you let go off easily?
  • What changes can you see on your horizon over next 6 months?
  • How does thinking about future changes that make you feel?

Now write a paragraph to yourself describing how you feel about change- it’s just for your eyes! Did anything surprise you?What changes (if any) would you like to make in your response to change?

  1. Hi Jane!

    If this year proves anything, I can deal with change. I changed so many variables and I have more to change in the future. As a career marketing strategist, I find that clients who embrace change can deal with job search and career transition much better than those who perceive that everything much remain the same to make them happy.

    Jane, you seem to read my mind. Great tips as always,

      Thank you Annie. I’m not a mind reader (would I want that talent-perhaps not!) but I’m really pleased that you enjoyed the tip.

  3. I like to think I embrace change but one change I can’t is moving house. I like to have everything I know around me. Promoting change in children is essential if they are to move forward and get out of their way of thinking and beliefs. When I coach children I remind myself that change is good and without it we can’t progress.

    • Jane says:

      Yes, change is the one thing we can’t really avoid. But we all have our limits. My husband moved many times as a child so I don’t think it’s a coincidence that we have been in our house for 30 years! It’s grown with us! Thanks for commenting Naomi,

  4. As someone who has moved house 7 times in 10 years I don’t see change as being a bad thing – indeed I always feel positively exhilarated by it as I get bored by more of the same. I think it’s important to instil – as parents = a healthy sense of curiosity and ‘What if?’ – it will stand them in good stead for the future
