Attachment is when you believe that things can or should remain one way forever. Things are in a constant state of change. Just as you change, so do the people around you, and your organization, and your community, so your relationship changes too.
Change is never easy, but if you can accept that it is inevitably occurring and embrace the change, transition can be easier. People put too much emphasis on remaining constant. There is an impermanence in everything. People come and go, the environment we operate in is constantly evolving, and new ways of doing things are discovered every day. We can hold on to the past forever, but it won’t change the fact that the rest of the world is moving on around us.
Effective leadership requires us to understand the changes and be flexible with them. Effective leadership requires us to understand ourselves to find why we resist certain challenges. If we can be open to possibilities and willing to explore them, we can solve anything and do anything.
