Managing change efficiently and effectively!

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

When faced with imminent change, rather than allow fear to kick in, why not embrace the idea of ‘new and infinite possibilities’?

Whether you choose to believe it or not, YOU are the creator of your own reality. Therefore, rather than allow yourself to feel like you are on a ‘sinking ship’ or spending too much time considering the ‘yes buts’, or the ‘what ifs’ – ‘grab the bull by the horns’ and make up your mind on how you are going to start to adapt to the changes that are taking place. What choices do you have? Are there any avenues you have not considered or alternative choices/ideas you have not thought about?

Use your time effectively and efficiently to manage the changes by the use of the 3 ‘P’s':-

Plan
Prioritize and
Prepare

Whatever you do, avoid Procrastinating, Catastrophizing and Awfulizing! Give yourself time to process what maybe changing or has changed, be kind to yourself and do not allow worry, fear and anxiety to kick in. Instead, be happy in the knowledge that you are still alive, that you still have so many things in your life to be grateful for and that whatever happens, you will be ok and you will survive!

Your life is a Gift, so live it in the present moment, stay in the here and now in enjoy every single second of it. Spend some time in quiet contemplation and then start re-creating your life, decide who you want to be and how you want your life to look. Don’t worry about the how’s, just have fun doing it. START TODAY!
