Change or perish! I cannot over emphasize the importance of this phrase. Life, in general, is all about responding to change. After all, change is the only constant thing in the universe.
In nature, species which fail to adapt to a changing environment become extinct. This rule applies to everyday life as well. Problems arise when we encounter a situation wherein we refuse to acknowledge that something has changed and refuse to make the necessary adjustments.
A long long time ago, I read "The road less traveled" by M. Scott Peck. He postulated that as children we draw a personal "map" of of life aided by our environment and personal experiences. This "map" help us navigate through life. As we grow up and gather more experience, ideally, we should also update our "map". Unfortunately, most of us don't and end up lost.
It's time for me to install the updates in my life. Probably, I even need to change my software altogether. Change is always difficult but it's necessary. I just wish that everything will still run after the reboot.
I hope you know that I am not talking about my computer (although it's new too).
