Change, before you have to.
The first time I read this inspiring message from Jack Welch, I was in Manhattan leafing through his book in a bookstore. Since then, in 1992, I used it as my personal mantra. Something to remind me of the impermanence of things; the temporality of everything we are and inhabit, including our jobs and our relationships with others. "Change before you have to," prepared me to design several life alternatives to always have ready: Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, Plan D . . . After all, life is change, and with our natural adaptive behavior, it is better to let us go with the flow through the most adverse winds. Surviving the process of our constant transformation is a gift that every human brings with his nature. Even though we are not always aware of the infinite possibilities of our positive changes, I share it here because I have survived so many times from what some have called failures, but which I have called challenges. These have allowed me to continue my evolutionary journey, learn from it, and teach them to those who would like to be as inspired as I have always been.
