The New Book “Digital Fit: Manifest Future of Business with Multidimensional Fit” Chapter 3 Introduction: Change Fit Closer to reality is that change is continuously happening in the dynamic environment of a company. Change is inevitable, and the speed of change is accelerating. The desires of stakeholders, clients, and employees are evolving naturally.

Can you “Move out of your Comfort Zone” Change is the new normal. Change is situational. It happens when something starts or stops, or when something that used to happen in one way starts happening in another. But acceptance of change is transitional, and “moving out of your comfort zone" can be used at all levels and as a starting point for change. It might sound like a cliche, the trick is understanding that moving out of a comfort zone leads to the creation of a new comfort zone which in turn will require you to move out "of" it again. This continuous moving "out" of your comfort zone is complemented by the cycle of self-development. There is a classic fable about a lion and a gazelle to analogize such a "surviving and thriving cycles": The lion wakes up and starts running otherwise it will not catch lunch. The gazelle does the same but, in this case, to avoid becoming lunch. Either way, you have to move to survive. This principle can be applied in a physical sense as well. The human body is designed for motion and physical effort.

Cultivate Healthy Habits to Adapt to Changes Change - big or small is inevitable. You can’t step into the same river twice, meaning that everything is always in a state of flow with increasing speed. Change agents are the leaders, change champions, change specialists, team players who orchestrate and collaborate to accomplish the desired changes and transformations. The change agent is not a title, but the game-changing mindset and the fine-tuned skillsets. More specifically, how to cultivate healthy habits to adapt to changes?
