I love the quote, “Change is the only thing that remains constant.” I think it really gets to the essence of life, relationships, interests, and professions.
If you accept that change is the only constant, then life suddenly becomes much simpler.
In fact, I don’t know about you, but I enjoy change. Of course, I like change on my own terms, but most of the timing is not up to us. I expect whatever it is I’m doing, wherever I’m living, and whoever my closest friends are, will change. Actually, in the next few months, all of those things will change.
- I’m going to get an executive MBA for entrepreneurs
- I’m moving from Ann Arbor, MI to Austin, TX
- With the move and going back to school, I’ll be making new friends and probably losing some old ones
That’s just life.
Of course, if you don’t have change in your life, it makes it easier. However, without change you don’t get to live your life to the fullest extent. It’s like going to the same restaurant everyday for every mean and ordering the grilled chicken sandwich. Now I love grilled chicken sandwiches, but not everyday. And not for every meal.
A related question that pops up in my mind is, how long will I be making the Headset Buddy? It could be months if all the cell phone and PC manufacturers decide to standardize their headset jacks. It could be 10 years if we keep growing like we have been. It could be 1 year if someone decides to buy the Headset Buddy brand. Who knows? Life’s funny and I look forward to one day looking back and laughing.
