And when any real change occurs in life, whether that be professionally or personally, there is ALWAYS a period of uncertainty and the unknown that fosters speculation and a complexity of guess work, a relatively obscure three ring circus. A recent quote from John Archibald Wheeler sums up the impact of change very constructively. Wheeler cites the following on “Einstein’s 3 Rules of Work.” 1) Out of Clutter find Simplicity. 2) From Discord find Harmony…and 3) In the middle of difficulty find opportunity.”
