Adaptability- Finishing Your Goal
By Gessy Martinez
It is important in life to have a structure but always be ready to adapt that structure to fit whatever may be taking place in your life at the time. Having structure defines what you need to do and one way to get it done. The ability to adapt, to be flexible, to rearrange as life presents different obstacles is the essence of being flexible.
Overcoming obstacles require adaptability. When you are moving forward in achieving your goals and the run into a roadblock, you must decide. You can decide it’s too hard, and get stuck at that point or you can decide it's not too hard, it possible. Each step will help put structure to your goals. If you have the basic structure in place, then moving the pieces around is easier. Start small and when you reach an obstacle being flexible to make a change will be easier. Think of it as starting a puzzle, the more of the puzzle you complete, moving the pieces around is easier, and you draw closer to achieving your goal of finishing.
Become more focused on achieving the goal and not being stuck to a rigid way of thinking or a rigid process. In reaching any goal, you must go through a process. In remaining adaptable, change can get you to the same goal in a different way. Assess, adapt and change, but do not quit. Adaptability is one key to making it work and reaching your goals and not giving up.
