Success in one’s career is dynamic not static . Whether it is on the job or in our personal lives, if we want to make progress, we must be willing to make changes often major changes in the way we do our jobs or live our lives.

He explains the overall concept of making change work for you and provides suggestions on how these changes can help you on the road to success. Change may be mandated by ever-changing technologies. A downslide in economic factors may necessitate changes in systems and methods, to ensure survival. Conversely, change may become necessary after a surge in economy, in order to meet the new rise in demand of your services or goods.
