I WELCOME YOU TO THE WORLD OF CHANGE!
Be different and change something! Be different by changing something! Do it with passion! When you do that, you will make a huge difference in what you have observed for most of your life. You should do this because your change will make a difference. For you. For everything and everyone, that surrounds you. For sure.
Yes, you are right to think that this book is different … it is! But although it is not simply a brochure, it also does not provide a comprehensive overview of everything that has been written about change so far. And, no, this book does not conform to any particular academic theory. All this has already been achieved by great authors over the years.
The book is an experience-based journey through change. It will engage your common sense and will be time well invested. However, you will need all your present knowledge and past experiences to hand in order to add your personal note to the message the book is conveying. At the very end of the journey, this should revive and reinforce your values. And, if this is achieved, we have won!
