Friday Reflection

November 8th, 2013


Change is inevitable. It is going to happen. We don’t always like it, but it is a fact of life. Social Media changes the way we connect and communicate with the world around us. We text, email, Skype, teleconference. We answer calls only to find an automated message communicating important information to us or selling us something.

How will you keep up with all the changes in communication, in work, in technology, in our society? Even the kind of jobs available today look nothing like the types of jobs from 25 years ago. Heck, 10 years ago we didn’t even have such a thing as “texting and driving.”

One of the most critical skills you can market to a hiring manager is adaptability. People lose jobs because they were unable to adapt to the changes in their workplace. They couldn’t adapt to a new manager, new software systems, or new processes. Because these workplace changes will always be a constant reality, learning how to adapt to change is critical for success as an employee or a job seeker in the marketplace.

Your best chance of success in your career will always be closely tied to your ability to adapt to changes.

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
― Leo Tolstoy
