With all of the shifting going on in my life of late, I have been thinking a lot about change.
Chris Keeler once said that every change that you really want comes down to one of two things:
- You want resources that you don't have.
- You want choices that you don't currently perceive.
The more I think about it, the more I think that the two things are actually the same thing - the ability to perceive choice is a resource. The ability to deal with change really comes down to the ability for you to gather the resources that allow you to either deal with the choices you have at the current moment or to create new ones.
I'm not sure that I'm really disagreeing with Chris here as much as reframing it in a new way - the point is that being able to create the change that you want is a matter of having the resources to create choice as well as capitalize on it.
