"Your life does not get better by chance, it get's better by change."
I had coffee with a friend the other day and he noticed that I had finally switched to a new phone. A few months ago I had finally pulled the trigger from being an iphone guy to my current phone the Samsung Note 3.
Now, backstory, I'm what you call an Apple Fanboy. I love their products. My office is set up with Apple computers and Mac software. After a bad Blackberry experience and a great iphone experience I could never imagine having another phone. Routine.
Until one day it didn't meet my expectations. It still did everything I had ever originally wanted from it. The problem was my own expectations were starting to change. My usage had changed. Wanting Change.
I had uncertainty because I had such great experiences with the iphone(history) even though it no longer met my current desires. Being stuck with a phone I was unhappy with for two years was always in the back of my mind. Fear of repurcussions.
Finally, I just leapt and switched. Nothing changes without action. The first being willing to let go of a good experience for the chance for a great one. Action.
Being willing to learn again is also a must. I had the iphone tips, tricks and apps down so much it was like muscle memory with my thumbs. The Samsung had a big learning curve. I had to relearn the basics and then get into the cool stuff. Sometimes this is frustrating. Growth.
Two months in, I couldn't be happier with my decision. I'm reading more, having a more enjoyable experience with videos and online seminars. Reward.
If you read this and think that this was just about a phone, you missed the point.
