One of our greatest birthrights as human beings is our capacity to adapt. Each of us can change—and we can change by choice more quickly than any other species on the planet. When we choose to adapt, we stop thinking about what we’ve lost and begin to make new discoveries. What typically results is a paradigm shift—a change in focus, mindset and behavior. As a musician, I have learned that there are two ways of coping with change: one is to accept it; the other is to create it.

Creating change of any kind, whether it’s a new musical arrangement or a new product or service, begins with a four-step process:

1) Visioning makes whatever you are thinking of creating possible.

2) Taking action makes whatever you have chosen to create accessible.

3) Practicing makes the results of your creation perfect.

4) Celebrating makes the efforts that you put into creating significant.
