To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven
Admittedly, I’m reusing the intro to a previous post about change … but once again it is totally applicable. Whether you attribute this quote to the song from the mid 1960s from The Byrds – Turn! Turn! Turn!), or go even further back to its original source from King Solomon, the context implies a sense of change … over the course of time, things are not going to stay the same.
Looking back over the course of my career, I can certainly see the truth in this. And I know I’m not the only one. Think about it, (and in sticking with the theme of the song) haven’t you experienced …
- jobs you’ve enjoyed, and jobs you’ve endured
- leaders you’ve admired, and those you’ve disdained
- teams with chemistry, and teams with dysfunction
- projects that have succeeded, and projects that failed
The reality is change is neither good nor bad necessarily … it just is.
