Change Is A Constant

Leading Through Change

Other than death and taxes, there’s one other thing that you can be sure of in your life. Change. Change is that other constant.

There will never be a part of your life that doesn’t involve change. From your family to your friends to your leadership position.

Everything changes.

Even you!

You cannot escape change. It pursues you like a lion pursues its prey. And change will find you like the lion finds the wounded or weak antelope.

This doesn’t mean you’re weak. What this means is that you’re human. You’re normal. You’re going to face change.

Stop Fighting Change

You may be tempted to try to outrun change like the pursued antelope. I want to give you a word today. That is to stop.

Stop trying to outrun or avoid change. Stop fighting change.

What I Love About My Google Chromebook

You’ll often hear the raging battle between Mac and PC users. There are many arguments for why the PC is better than a Mac and why a Mac is better than a PC.

What you rarely hear about is the Google Chrome OS and how it gets inexpensive laptops into user’s hands.You'll be surprised with a Google Chromebook

Before my trip to Catalyst Atlanta 2013, I purchased the Acer C710-2856 Chromebook laptop. The C710 is a sleek and unassuming powerhouse for the general user looking to surf the internet, create word documents, and send emails.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to like this laptop as it uses a different operating system than I’m used to. However, that was easily overcome after a short period of usage.

The Google Chrome OS is a sleek beauty that is easy to use and understand. If you’ve ever used their Chrome browser, you’ll easily adapt.
