Step One: Bury your head in the sand.
The further the better. Really get in there. Make sure you can’t see or hear anything that could possibly make you even think about the future.
Step Two: Don’t go online.
The Internet is full of change-mongers looking to convince you that what you’re doing currently isn’t working. Obviously it is and always will. That’s not going to change. Especially if you make sure you stay off the worldwide web.
Step Three: Don’t even think about picking up the phone.
That’s how they get you, with their fancy buzzwords and promises of making more money. Who needs them? You don’t. You know better. Let it ring.
Step Four: Never open another email.
No good story starts with “And then I received this email…” You know what kind of stories start like that? Horror stories. Where everything changes. And nothing stays the same. And it’s awful. Just let ‘em pile up. That’s what inboxes are for.
Step Five: Really dig your heels in.
Let's be serious, they’re never dug in far enough. Being stuck in your ways isn’t enough these days. You have to really get entrenched. Build a fortress, pull-up the drawbridge, and fill the moat with crocodiles. If you don’t take every precaution, you never know when you might get swept up in the latest tech revolution.
Step Six: Ignore bubbling problems.
Channel your inner frog. Sit in the boiling water like nothing’s the matter. You can’t feel the heat. You can’t see the bubbles. Your spirit animal is a frog and you know how to ignore a problem when you don’t see one.
Step Seven: Repeat steps one through six.
Seriously, change makers are nonstop these days. They will call you. They will email you. They will find you online. So quit answering calls, ignore emails and get off the grid. Hunker down in your fortress, ignore problems, dig in your heels and bury your head in the sand.
That’s the recipe for resisting change.
