Addiction to Change!

One of the manager I had worked with in my earlier project was going on
to become a CIO in a different country.

Today was his farewell day speech.

He moved from Singapore to Japan and after 10 years of working and managing large teams(Pretty successfully and mind you, he is not fluent in japanese!) in Japan, he will be moving to Dubai as the CIO.
Looking back at his career, he acknowledged that there has been tremendous growth but it has come at a cost. The cost is "change".

"I am Addicted to Change" was his way of putting it.

Makes perfect sense! If you are in your comfort zone for a long period of time, you reach a point where things stand still.

Moving out of the comfort zone and quickly adapting to change would be the key and addiction to this will guarantee you tremendous growth!
