Change the past, transform the future

Friday November 23rd, 2018 in Ampersand Latest

Everything changes, we’ve heard this before. Change is not always for the better but the idea is that by adopting new approaches to important aspects of our lives we can improve them. Change is designed to make things better, not worse.

An article in The Primes discusses change versus transformation. This straight forward article goes to the heart of what this means and seperates the differences so that we can benefit when planning for the future. “Change fixes the past. Transformation creates the future.”

Embracing and understanding the simplicity of all this, untangles and smooths the runway towards the future for the benefit of all.

This is our climate of business, and life. A worthy read as change and transformation does in fact impact us all, and so it should.

It’s not to be feared, it’s to be embraced but collaborative leadership and sharp execution should be at the forefront of all initiatives.

To not change is a risk. To not transform is a mistake.
