What would happen if you were presented with a radical new idea? A way to improve the sound of your stereo system, one that would require you to adopt a whole new way of thinking.
Would you be excited or cautious?
Though I don’t have one up my sleeve, the question remains.
Jump in and swim or wait and see how things pan out over time?
Clearly, we’re all different. I would be first in line for the new because that’s just me. Though I am in the minority, I love and embrace change.
Moving forward with the new is what gets me out of bed in the morning and dreaming of the possibilities keeps me lying awake at night.
For most others, it’s quite the opposite.
These fundamental differences are probably built into our DNA. Developed over countless generations, I’ll bet that the reason there are fewer people excited over change is that they likely had a much lower survival rate. It wasn’t that many centuries ago that early adopters were the first to try something new and the first to bite the proverbial weenie when something went horribly wrong.
Thankfully, we live in an era where it’s safer to experiment and stretch our wings into the new.
I’d say that as a culture we’re becoming more comfortable with experimenting with the new.
And to me, that’s exciting.
