Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”

– Jon Kabat-Zinn

At work, the changes are constant, and never stop. They just keep “rolling in.” The overall economy is ever-changing, every industry goes through its changes, company management changes, even unforeseeable events like Covid-19 cause innumerable changes at work. Like ocean waves, the waves of change don’t stop, they just keep rolling in, and out, and they are relentless. You’ll never stop changes from taking place, but you can learn how to adapt to them. Learn to be flexible, “unsinkable,” well-grounded in your values, by your positive attitude, and your willingness – if not actual interest – in learning to adapt. Maybe, even become a surfer, who takes joy in riding the waves, and teach us that, while the waves may be innumerable, they are not insurmountable.

This quote was shared with us by Louis, of Island of Palms, South Carolina, who describes himself “not a surfer, but I love to watch them ride the really big ones.” Thanks for contributing the thought, Louis.
