How do I embrace change?

Agile is all about embracing change. Dr. Spencer Johnson provided the best definition of change and process for its adaptation in his book "Who Moved My Cheese". It is a fantastic book to read. Use the following  as a rule of thumb for embracing change (cheese is symbolized as change below):

Change Happens
A Reality: They keep moving the cheese.

Anticipate Change
Get ready for the cheese to Move.

Monitor Change
Smell the cheese often so you know when it is getting old.

Adapt To Change Quickly
The quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you can enjoy new cheese.

Move with the cheese.

Enjoy Change!
Savor the adventure and enjoy the taste of new cheese!

Be Ready To Change Quickly And Enjoy It Again & Again
They keep moving the cheese.

Don't forget to watch small video. It's awesome!
