If change has always been an integral part of life, why do we resist it so? Why, in every generation, do we have Luddites? What goes through a person’s mind when they are informed of or predict change? Is my position safe? What will I have to do? What will I need to know? Am I capable and confident with new direction? Do I have any say about this or any control over what is about to happen? Do I really need to change? Do I have time for this? How am I going to do that and this? How will this impact what I have already done? As you can see there are many questions that come up when even the thought of change occurs.
