“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
Sometimes the clearest way to see what change is needed is to separate oneself from the cacophony of daily life and simply be still. The hustle and bustle of activity serves to lock oneself into a routine, a relentless hamster wheel effect. It is hard to see what change is needed when your energy is spent just keeping up. Sometimes it is not about fighting the old, it is about breaking free from it long enough to know what change is needed.
