Personally, I love change.
I love the variety.
I get bored with the same thing all the time.
It's both a gift and a curse.
I find that most people are afraid of change which holds them back. They are afraid to make the leap. They are afraid of what's on the other side. They are too comfortable where they are.
That being said, there are some things I would never want to change, like my wife (I love you sweetie). But, our relationship has changed over the years. It is very different now than it was when we were in our twenties with no kids and no businesses. We have evolved as a couple. We have grown together. We have changed together.
I think it's important to understand where change can be impactful for YOU.
Changing your underwear is important.
Changing your spouse on the other hand... Well, that's for you to decide. The question I have for the person who is thinking about that is "Does your spouse make you a better person?"
Changing the filter in your furnace is important.
Changing the direction of your business... That, once again, is for you to decide. Sometimes change is good. Other times you need to Lean In and just commit.
And that's the advice I received from a mentor of mine, Rock Thomas, not long before we decided to change the direction of the podcast (which is now Lean in with Casey Grey).
And once we started the new podcast, my producer, Brian, and I had conversations around the format of the podcast. Brian has some great ideas which require more work but he's excited to lean in and commit to it.
New Podcast. New Format.
Change is good :)
Yesterday was the first episode with the new format and I love the change! When I interviewed Tarek Mounib of Free Trip to Egypt, we were not planning for the new format but Brian worked his magic.
You can listen to Tarek's episode on Apple Podcasts or Google Play Music.
