Embrace Change (While Still Standing for Something) to Get Ahead (read it on blogs.hbr.org)
Why Read It? Prepare for change by maximizing options at each step of your career, so that you can be ready to react to whatever the world throws at you.
"Be prepared to learn new skills, take advantage of new trends, and adapt to unforeseen crises — if you don't, you'll be left behind as the world changes without you. But never lose focus on economic fundamentals and, especially, your own personal integrity."
- Change is ubiquitous in most facets of our lives. In a recent study, the Bureau of Labor statistics found that the average person in their sample held eleven jobs between the ages of 18 and 46 — meaning a job-switch once every 2.5 years.
- Although change pervades most aspects of our world, two principles have remained the same over centuries: economic fundamentals and personal integrity.
- Get comfortable with uncertainty. No matter your current line of work, you can make smarter decisions by recognizing that the future is inherently unknowable.
- When presented with a potential change, we usually weigh the potential losses more heavily than the potential gains. This tendency is completely understandable. Unfortunately, it can also prevent you from getting ahead.
