The Benefit of Keeping An Open Mind
"There exist limitless opportunities in every industry. Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier." - Charles Kettering
I used to have a difficult time making adjustments mentally if my plans didn't go the way that I expected. A change in my blueprint somehow signaled to me that impending professional doom was near. How wrong was I. I've come to know that change is something you can bank on in business (and in life). Adaptation and flexibilty are two very important character traits to intentionally develop. Changes do not mean that your plans will not succeed, it just reveals that you may have to try another route, drive a little further, or reconfigure your mental GPS. A nimble mind is able to go with the proverbial flow without taking its eyes off of the desired end. This will allow you to enjoy the journey a little more and have inner tranquility when changes do occur.
