Great post on Ted Murphyâ€™s blog about Change. Hereâ€™s a snippet:
I think there are 4 phases of change.
1. Recognizing that a change needs to be made.
2. Deciding what the change should be.
3. Making the change.
4. Embracing the new direction.
In my opinion phases 2-3 are by far the hardest, but where many people actually fail is phase 4 because of â€œwhat ifâ€. What if I made the wrong change? What if I waited longer? What if it doesnâ€™t work out? These are all natural questions, but you canâ€™t let them get the best of you. They can be paralyzing and force you to always be looking back on your change instead of pushing forward.
Once a change has been made you need to commit. There will be many changes in the future, there is no need to fixate on the past.
