Let’s play a quick word association game. I’ll say a word, and you say (or write, or think quietly to yourself at your desk) what that word brings to mind. Ready?
What did you think of? Chances are, terms like: “stressful,” “expensive,” or “inconvenient” came to mind. Whether based upon a bad experience moving a grand piano through a crooked hallway, or just a gut response to the idea itself, I’d wager that most responses fell on the negative side of the adjective spectrum. It’s no surprise that we humans are hard wired to either dread change or avoid it entirely, especially when predicated upon doing a lot of (literal or figurative) heavy lifting. And unfortunately, this often precludes us from making necessary changes in our personal and professional lives.
