2. ADAPT OR DIE – Facing Change Fearlessly.
One of the things we as humans fear the most is change, so we resist it. And this resistance to change can stagnate us and keep us from achieving success because the reality is, that we are living in a world of constant flux and flow.
What works today is gone tomorrow, disruptive innovations can destroy entire industries and in this day and age, companies find themselves constantly scrambling up slippery slopes to stay on top. Gone are the days of a nice steady flow of change.
And not only does the world of change we are living in, affect organizations, it affects us as individuals. Change can paralyze us in fear because it is often perceived as a threat. Change means having to do things differently, it means getting out of our comfort zone, it means absorbing new information and developing new skills and this can make us afraid.

For one man, the hunt for the Submarine, became a self destructive obsession.
