In a time where change seems to be the word du jour, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and forget that this state of flux isn’t a new concept. Roughly 2500 years ago, the Greek Philosopher Heraclitus pointed out that “The only constant in life is change.” So if the constant change is something that has been around for so long, why now does it all feel a bit overwhelming?
Philosophically this could, in part, be because we live much faster lives these days, and through our constant-on social media consumption might have less time to disconnect. At the same time, we get bombarded with irrelevant social media and news we don’t need to know.
Whether we look at these constant changes or whether this change takes place on a personal, business, organisational, or even societal level, this affects all of us, and everyone must be prepared.
