Adapting to & Surviving Change in 4 Simple, Easy Steps
Change is constant, it is inevitable, we experience change on a daily basis, in some cases we choose change, by changing of jobs and in other circumstances it is forced upon us. To me change is good it gives you perspective, a time to analyse and revert back to basics. Change is taking steps where you regulate the “Pace”.
Surving Change: The PACE Technique
- P (Plan)
- A (Act)
- C (Communicate)
- E (Everlasting)
1. Surviving Change: Plan
Plan – we have to revert to the end in mind, if it is a personal issue it is important to know and establish where you want to be and what is the outcome going to be – The goals that you want to achieve by making the changes or making provision for what the change might bring.
2. Surviving Change: Act
Act – this is the time to act on what you set out to achieve, we have to take action at some point and this is where you take charge, take ownership and lead.
3. Surviving Change: Communicate
Communicate – this is the glue to your planning, it is crucial, personal motivation and a little bit of encouragement from a confidant is always a good way to stay motivated and keeps the plan real and achievable.
4. Surviving Change: Everlasting
Everlasting – we have adapted to the change. Final stages are basically accepting the change, live the life that you have planned.
In the end we all have changes, dealing with them is not always easy and the most important part is how you deal with it? And how it will affect you, we cannot always determine what is planned for us, it is more the experience you gain from the journey. “How do you eat a elephant? – Bit by bit” – Unknown
