I stumbled on this post on the beautiful blog of Owen Williams, titled iOS 7 Isn’t Bad, Change Is Just Hard.
It’s about how a lot of people, are complaining about how ugly the upcoming iOS design is.
Apple is changing everything, making everything flat, colorful and modern minimalistic.
And they change a lot of the ways of how you do things on your iOS devices.
A lot of people hate iOS 7 so much.
But actually, it’s not bad. At least, not as bad as they were like *almost* trying to kill somebody because of it.
It’s just, y’know, change is hard.
Any change is hard for us.
If it were not, we’ll be a bunch of successfully wealthy people, highly decorated with achievements, with great health and six pack abs.
Change is always hard. Even when the next thing guaranteed after the change is going to be a very good thing, change is still hard.
We like things to be the way it is. Don’t touch my phone design. Don’t tell me to go on diet. Don’t tell me to work better. Even if it kills us and drives us into poverty and misery, we still choose not to change.
But there lies the secret.
When change is showing his ugly face, do not reject him. Try to listen what he has to say.
Try to try to change.
Because change most of the time points to better things.
It’s almost as accurate as a compass.
When you don’t like this change, then it is almost certain that he is good for you.
Wouldn’t you like that? A compass for you life?
Seek change. Feel bad about it, but learn to live with it.
In fact, do it whole-heartedly, and you’re on the right track.
*Thank you Owen 🙂
