Changing Winds by Kevin Dooley

To live an inspired life in harmony with change is not an easy process. In truth, it is an ongoing effort because change can easily upset life as you know it. What may have worked for you before may suddenly no longer hold true and you will find yourself scrambling to adjust to new circumstances. There is no escaping it. As long as you live, you have to learn, change and grow. To do otherwise would only leave you and the people who depend on you vulnerable.

In learning to manage change, reading widely helps. If something is not useful to me at this point, I make a mental note of it in case I need it later. What I have compiled here is a list of topics written by some of the brightest bloggers today that relates to managing change better. It is my hope that this compilation will help you to live an inspired life in harmony with change.

Inspired Living in Harmony with Change

1. Managing Procrastination
-18 Radical Ways to Stop Procrastination by Farnoosh Brock (Prolific Living)

The key to dealing with change is to take action as early as possible. By action, I do not mean plunging headfirst into a crisis. Rather if you must take measures to plan and prepare, then do so early because change will not wait for you.

But before you can take action, you must address the dangers of procrastination. But fret not it is manageable. All you have to do is to read the 18 radical ways that the ever-radical Farnoosh has put together to deal with this threat.

2. Focus
-Atomic Action by Rob White (Mind Adventure)

Half-hearted action rarely leads to success. If you cannot focus on what you do, you are likelier to make needless mistakes that can lead to failure. This is true in all areas of life and dealing with change is no exception. To succeed at anything, you need to focus fully on the present moment. If you ever wondered about how to focus better, do read Rob’s excellent article on Atomic Action.

3. Non-Attachment
-How to Practice Non-Attachment in 7 Ways by Evelyn Lim (Abundance Tapestry)

One of the greatest obstructions to change is attachment. The more attached you are to people, things, views or even the status quo, the harder it is to flow with change. In truth, nothing lasts forever. All we have in this world are moments. It is therefore vital that we maximize these moments so that when the time comes to let go, we can do so with ease because we have no regrets. Thankfully, Evelyn of Abundance Tapestries shows us how to practice non-attachment in her lovely article.

4. Simplicity
-Happiness with Less by Stuart Mills (Unlock the Door)

Did you know that the ball and chain restrained prisoners from the 1880s to the 1940s to prevent escapes? While many of us may not realize it, our possessions have a similar impact on our lives. They hamper our movements and make us slow in dealing with change. This is due to our attachments. We are afraid to lose what we have. If you want greater happiness and freedom of action, do check out Stuart’s post on happiness with less.
