I cannot say whether things will get better if we change; what I can say is they must change if they are to get better. --G. C. Lichtenberg
It looks as though the future will be a little different to how I perceived it yesterday, given recent developments at work. Suffice it to say that things will change drastically, but that change was not entirely unexpected.
Not one to hide behind quotations (believing those who do so are lacking the words to express themselves), here is my take. Change is great; to rest on what feels comfortable is a mistake. The world around us does not observe the same complacency, and a refusal to accept the inevitable does not avoid it, instead it merely places one in a far less advantageous position to deal with it. Accepting change as the rule rather than the exception is the best preparation for the adventure that lies ahead.
