Change or be changed

Perspectives

The world is now changing very fast in terms of technology, education, eating habits and dress. We like some changes, while others create fear and anxiety. However, there is hardly anything in life that is not changing.
An unknown philosopher remarked: “If you do not create change, change will create you”. In some cases, we are resistant to change, while change itself is constant. The questions that make us insecure for life are: What will happen to us tomorrow, what will happen to our children.
There is no doubt at all that everything is changing. The choice is whether we let change happen or make change happen. If we chose the former, we would be changed by external conditions. If we chose the latter, we need courage and flexibility to make changes. Many business strategy books point out the resilient, responsible and profitable businesses are those that “make change happen”.
Natural phenomena are demanding changes. Any institution also calls for change. However, changes should be aimed for the development of an organization or a society. If we resist changes, we will suffer from this obstinacy. For example, if we do not change our posture after working for some minutes, we will feel pain in our body.
It seems that now the entire fabric of life will have to be changed. Life will have to be redesigned. The life of the individual, the social structure, and governance—all will have to be re-planned to meet the mainstream of emerging development.
Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw said progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. However, changes need “courage” and “confidence”.
