“Any change, even change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.”

-Arnold Bennett

As mentioned in our blog post yesterday, making positive change and instilling better habits is always a challenge. Drawbacks and discomforts are a normal part of change, but end up teaching us more in the long run. In your professional lives, change can often be for the better, regardless of how hard it may be. Remember why this change is happening, and how it will benefit you in the long run to manage the tough parts of development and growth.
