In the clash between emotion and logic, emotion usually triumphs.
You know that struggle that you feel when you’re on a diet, that part of you wants to lose that last 10 pounds but then part of you wants to feast on Blue Bell Cookies and Cream while in your PJ’s watching American Idol? That same conflict is happening nearly every time you think about change. If change is that hard, it’s because you can’t agree with yourself whether the change is worth it.
So you say you want to be a Change Agent in your company? In order to change the circumstances at your job, you must become an agent of change in your own life. David Bowie says “he’s gonna have to be a different man” (I LOVE this song!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xorNjvg1B48 Mr. Bowie is on to something.
