- Life is not a rehearsal. Neither is it meant to be static. Living means evolving.
- Many people hope for a quick fix, but Manfred F. R. Kets de Vries insists that most changes are incremental. In fact, the path to quantum-like changes tends to be very dramatic – one that you may not necessarily want to tread. An example would be someone who’s had a near-death experience and comes back wanting to overhaul their life.
- No matter what kind of change is afoot, pain is required as a motivator, warned Kets de Vries. “We are a very change-resistant species. You need a certain amount of discomfort with your present situation”, he said. The change that is called for may be plain as day for onlookers, but unless the discomfort has reached some threshold, “nothing will happen”.
