If you haven’t noticed that we’re going through major changes right now, you’re living on another planet.

Some of the changes are hard to stomach like our economy and employment situation .

Other changes, like the ones happening on the technology front, make me feel like I just won the lottery…like the fact that I can run my business from my iPhone.

“It’s not the strongest or the most intelligent of species that will survive, but it’s those who are most responsive to change.” – Charles Darwin

I realized this as a kid, when my family moved sometimes as often as every 3-6 months. While constantly changing schools and having to always make new friends sucked, I discovered it came with a few advantages.

Like getting a boatload of second chances.

For example, in the 2nd  grade, I peed my pants during recess and was made fun of by the whole class for the rest of the school year.   But, when I changed schools in the 3rd grade, no one ever knew about that and I had a clean slate.   I was the best break dancer in our grade which officially made me the coolest kid in school.

I learned a long time ago that when you’re responsive to change, you usually end up ok. .
