For better and for worse, things happen that change our lives quickly- and permanently.
Most of you can remember what airplane flights were like before September 11, 2001. In 1970 I walked on to numerous airplanes from Athens, Greece to Atlanta, Georgia with a large, antique Turkish sword. No one questioned me about it or tried to take it away from me. Gone are the days. Those nine 9/11/01 hijackers changed commercial aviation forever.
Chances are you have been part of some organization where a leader has made some positive, permanent, transformational change. If not, think of the changes that took place in America through things like Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, or the Social Security Act of 1935, or the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Each of these changed America forever.
The good news is that we are in charge of our lives. And most of us could choose to make one change that would produce a 33% permanent improvement in our lives. What change would that be for you? Are you willing to make this change?
