CGL1 Embracing Change Nov 14th Final.jpg

Are you courageous enough to move out of your comfort zone? It is a human tendency to want to cling to familiar patterns, even if they are outdated and no longer serve us. Change is good though! The NewLaw industry is based on innovation and change. It was one of the main instigators of change in terms of how legal services were being delivered by traditional law firms under which partnership model the billable hours culture dominates. Lesley Hobbs and Tim Fawcett established their NewLaw firm, Cognatio Law, to meet the legal market changes in Hong Kong, where the demand for flexible and cost effective legal services continues to grow and change sometimes seemingly on a daily basis.

Humans in general are often resistant to change, not realising that change itself is constantly happening around us and to us. Even if you resist it, change happens sooner or later. Resistance is futile! In many cases change brings greater knowledge and new experiences into our lives, leading to increased flexibility, self-confidence and open-mindedness.
 
Below we explore a few of the powerful benefits change can bring into our lives.
 
Personal Growth

Change helps you discover new insight about yourself and those around you, sometimes even offering you viewpoints from a different perspective. This leads to self growth, and a greater awareness about the world around you.

Flexibility

Learning to roll with life’s changes helps you become better able to adapt to new situations, as well as new environments, experiences, new people, etc. Think of the willow tree, which bends and sways easily in high winds but does not break. You are a survivor!

Opportunities

When you move out of your comfort zone, you’ll find new choices and different opportunities waiting for you. Evaluate your new path carefully, as not all changes are positive. You should exercise good judgment in selecting your steps as you move forward. Change brings new beginnings and often adds excitement to life!

Betterment

We all have areas in our lives that we would like to improve, whether it is your personal life, finances, career, housing, etc. Changes that we make to our lives, along with hard work, is the only sure way for improvement to happen. Change is vital to improving our lives.

Change is one of the most difficult things for people to face. Yet, change is inevitable. Learn to embrace it, adapting to life’s quirks and roll with the punches. There are vital skills you should master to succeed both on a professional and personal level.
