The best way to predict the future is to create it.

Peter Drucker

One man’s opinion (Mike Manes) -

Change is… so leadership must be.

Change is the transition from today through tomorrows.

Without change death occurs; with change growth continues.

Today, without change, can never become tomorrow.

In the comfort zone change has no Advocate; in the marketplace change enjoys
a mandate

Individuals “can” change; but the “will” is needed to make it happen.
