Choose to change

obama_change

We’ve all heard the word “change” tossed around a lot lately and we might see some of it come this Tuesday. The great thing about the word “change” is that it is a container word – a word we can fill with whatever meaning we’d like, be it positive or a negative.

Change can get us closer to our goals or move us further away. It can bring us together under a common purpose or drive insurmountable barriers between us. It represents action and movement in any direction we choose.

This post isn’t so much about politics as it is about choice. Change hates stagnation and does not tolerate indifference, but rather it forces us to choose. Change makes us move off the fence and land on one side or the other.

2009 is a time to choose to change – to have a career path full of meaning, a simpler life, an optimistic outlook – whatever you wish.

As Gandhi put it, it’s your time to “be the change you want to see in the world.”

How will you choose to change?

Happy Friday!
