How Are You Managing Change?


“Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.” —Arnold Bennett

By Elizabeth Stincelli, DM


Why Change

Fight it all you want, change is inevitable. When we fail to embrace change we cause ourselves undue stress and waste valuable time and resources. Why change? Change becomes necessary when the needs of our organization, customers, or employees change.

Ocean liner sails the seas
people wallowing in luxury
while others are dying
of hunger and war
still others are buying
more and more

There’s great wealth
to be had
but its not shared
and that is sad

There is a simple solution, folks.
If you have more than you need,
share it with others!

working together

Population explosion
in just my lifetime.
Why are there so many
more souls on Earth now
than ever before?

Clear lakes of my childhood
have disappeared
wars without end
calamities everywhere;
are we nearing the end?

Perhaps, but this need not
be so. We have all we need
to reverse this tale;
each of us working
individually and together
can restore the land
and build communities
where people conserve

Please, let’s start
right now!

I’m Not Easy to Love

Source of Inspiration

I’m not easy to love
for I demand integrity
in a relationship–
yours and mine.

Sometimes we both fail to
keep the gold standard,
leaving us struggling to
love unconditionally,
but feeling disappointed.

I can not be owned
or possessed
bought or bribed.
If I am with you,
it is because
I choose to be
but not through lack
or fear
for only pure love
can blend our souls;
all else is false
an illusion
of self-centeredness
empty in the end

which shows me that
I need to understand
your point of view
as well as examine
my certainty more
to see if I really
agree with me!
