So what does this have to do with change? During a major change in our lives, we are asked to substitute new behaviors for old familiar ones. As we "work" on the new (sometimes frustrating) task - we burn a lot of energy. In today's world, especially at work - we are asked to do many new things each day. No wonder we sometimes go home crabby! I don't think it is so much that people are lazy and don't want to change. I think that we are saturated with changes that do in fact exhaust us!
