Constant Change

13 08 2007

This is the title of one of my favourite songs and, although I knew people who moved around more than I did, I am able to relate to this song because I had a hard time dealing with change as a kid. Moving from our province to Manila for grade school, to Jakarta for high school and then back to Manila for university was not really easy.

However, this experience allowed me to become more flexible to changes. This is probably the reason why I enjoyed the Change Management class I took a couple of years ago, because I know and appreciate how difficult it is to implement and manage change.

I guess this is also the reason why I usually go out of my way to communicate changes to everyone, and why I appreciate leaders who take the time to do so. In the same way, that is why I do not like people who simply force new things down people’s throats.

 

Contact Change
Jose Mari ChanWe’re on the road
We move from place to place
And oftentimes when I’m about to call it home
We’d have to move along
Life is a constant change…

The friends we know we meet along the way
Too soon the times we share form part of yesterday
‘Cause life’s a constant change
And nothing stays the same, oh no

Clouds that move across the skies
Are changing form before our very eyes

Why couldn’t we keep time from movin’ on?
Hold on to all the years before this moment’s gone?
Why must we live the days at such a frightening pace?

We’re all like clouds that move across the skies
And changing form before our very eyes

Have we outgrown our Peter Pans and wings?
We’ve simply grown too old for tales of knights and kings
‘Cause life’s a constant change
And nothing stays the same, oh no
