Change Resistance

Dear WordPress,

I know that I do not update my website and ramblings as often as I should. I know that my website deserves more of my attention. I also appreciate how you strive to stay up to date and make website maintenance, navigation, and posting easier. Sincerely, it is appreciated.  This block system, while idiot proof, is not an enjoyable experience for me.  I notice Gutenberg has two stars on your plugins page while the classic editor has a 5 star rating and millions of active users. I’m not alone in my resistance to this change.

Change is inevitable, and one day I will have to adopt the block system.  Today is not that day.  

Sincerely, 

Me

We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

Charles R. Swindoll

A few thoughts…Open your mind. Open your heart. Open your eyes. You never know what others are going through. Your project, your idea, while great- it’s probably not the only thing they have to focus on. Negativity breeds negativity and being positive is a choice.  Adapting to change, also a choice.  Sometimes, like using WordPress block editing, we need to ease in to it.  I know that I will probably love it when I decide to utilize it.  Right now, I’m not ready to learn something new.  I am resisting the change that has been coming for more than a year.  As I open my mind to it’s possibilities, I found a plugin that keeps me comfortable while I learn something new.
 
It is human nature to stick with what is familiar and continue with the status quo.  If the status quo is making you miserable, it’s time for change.  That change either needs to be an attitude change, or a situational change.  Either way, something needs adjustment.  Why go through life with such negativity? It’s not healthy.
 
According to Forbes.com 61% of employees are burned out.  That leads to disengagement, decreased productivity, and even profit loss.  That’s just the negative for the company.  What about the health of employees?  Burn out is real.  Sinking to it is a choice. If you are unhappy, find-something-else! Don’t just trudge into work everyday spreading negativity and drama.  Start asking yourself some questions.
  • Why did you accept this position?
  • What is keeping you here?
  • What are my goals?
  • Does this position help me pursue or achieve my goals?

Use the answers to these questions to make a decision. Change your attitude and stay, or go.  The negativity is not good for you and not good for your company. 

Changing your circumstances is hard. It’s work. You don’t feel like it. It takes effort.  Mel Robbins offers a solution that makes it simple.  Take a listen…
