Why You should Embrace Change

Wildebeest that travel thousands of miles every year to get to water during the dry season will walk in a windy pattern a lot of the time. In fact, when they move around across the plains, they will continuously assess the environment they are in right now before choosing where to go next. For example they consider the direction of the wind to ensure they are upstream from any predators, they also consider the condition of the grazing around them, the time of day and their proximity to shelter. The ultimate goal of getting to the water with the herd still being alive and well is a finely managed operation and tweaked all the time.

A Lesson To Be Learned
Within the corporate environment we may not have to fight for our own personal survival, but there is a lesson to be learned from the Wildebeest. We need to be open to the fact that sometimes what appears to us as obstacles and deviations that forces us down a windy (inefficient, slowing down or unproductive) path is really the environment showing us the better options or actions to move forward towards our goal considering the environment that exists on that day. By keeping up with the environmental conditions on a daily basis and re-assessing our path to achieve our goals, we must adjust our actions for the day.
Astute professionals will have their ears to the ground and be open to changes that may be flowing into their project environment. Understanding the fundamental importance of change is a secret way to perceive and be alert to opportunities to see the map of the real pathway to success. To kick against the change just because it is ‘a change’ is a recipe to be eaten alive by lions!
