Flexibility - Adapt to unexpected developments

It’s hard to switch gears when you’re charging hard to implement your plan. But adapting to changes that happen along the way, rather than resisting them, can lead to an even better outcome. Brian Tracy's advice is on-target: "Be clear about your goal but be flexible about the process of achieving it."

Are there times when you needed to take a different approach but were reluctant to change?
"As the water shapes itself to the vessel that contains it, so a wise man adapts himself to circumstances.” - Confucius, Chinese philosopher

"Enjoying success requires the ability to adapt. Only by being open to change will you have a true opportunity to get the most from your talent."
- Nolan Ryan, American professional baseball player


  1. Meredith, I love the sound of your voice and the visuals. Your words were right on target but I'd watch and listen no matter what you said. You go girl!

  2. Thanks for your encouragement, Kathleen. That felt really good!

  3. Yes, precision on the destination, flexibility on the journey - thanks
