You need to view change as an opportunity to embrace, rather than a danger to avoid, says Bob Milligan, agricultural economist at Cornell University.

His advice:

  • Be positive.
  • Get organized. Set priorities, but when necessary, renegotiate them during change.
  • Stay focused. Know where you are headed.
  • Be flexible. When faced with uncertainty, be open to different options.
  • Be proactive. Work with change rather than defend against it.
