Whether you're building a product or a service, working in a small or a large team, the ability to embrace change is hard. Change is hard for us, as individuals, and perhaps even harder for organizations. Recently I wrote about how we, at Sandglaz, cultivated a culture of embracing change. Today, I gathered a few powerful quotes on change, growth and adaptation. Share them, tweet them, and most importantly use them to inspire you to embrace change.
