Recently, a hardworking colleague of mine was asked to leave due to redundancy. Today, one of our chiefs decided to ride into the sunset.
These scenerios causes panic as suddenly, people come to realize that their jobs aren’t permanent. When companies decide to move their departments to a lower cost territory. Or outsourcing. When technologies replaces people. When old people are replaced by younger, cheaper ones. When new bosses come in and want to leave a legacy and make huge changes.
All these did not happen just last week. These has been an on-going process since the birth of mankind- Change.
We cannot stop changes. The only constant is change. We cannot stop the new CEO from replacing the old one. However, we can do something. We can continuously try to improve ourselves. We can contribute as much as we can. We can upgrade our skills and knowledge. We can minimalize our desires just in case we have to accept a lesser role and salary.
Moaning and groaning will not change anything. Only by changing how we think and putting in effort to change ourselves will.
