The only constant in life is change. Once we appreciate this, we should embrace change and profit from it. The aim for all of us is to be resilient in the face of change, and sufficiently resourceful not only to withstand change, but to thrive on it.

Thriving on change is the difference between living and existing. Thriving on change is what makes people strong, impervious to other people's opinions and, ultimately, thriving on change is the only way to live in this tempestuous world. Look at the best companies, the best teams, the most creative people - the one thing they can all do when faced with an altering landscape is tear up Plan A and invent a Plan B.

This agility, this lightness of touch, this ability to embrace risk, knowing the pros and cons, is what it is all about. Sometimes you are rewarded, sometimes not, but if you don't give it a go, you will be passed.
