Scott’s Thoughts: Embracing Change

“When you are through changing, you are through.”

Bruce F. Barton, (August 5, 1886 — July 5, 1967) American author, advertising executive, and politician

There are those in business who lament change–shifts in how we communicate, the speed of technology, the feeling that what we learned a few years ago is obsolete. But adapting to change is what keeps our minds sharp. Change brings new ideas, new perspectives on old ideas, and plenty of opportunities to see the world as a new place.

I am not among those who see all change as a symptom of “the end of the good old days.” I see change as a sign of perpetual reinvestment in the world, a sign that people are hungry for new experiences, and the presence of a force which helps us work to embrace what change brings.

I hope to be so lucky to be an old man who is still interested in new technology, trends, and shifts in thinking. It seems to me that the happiest among us maintain a natural curiosity. Those that lose it seem to age before their time. What Bruce Barton says is true: “When you are through changing, you’re through.”
