Hello Fellow WHTers!

Change can be a challenge

Dennis Johnson (aka SoftWareRevue)

I've talked about our move into the new house before. Some of you know that about 2 weeks ago, I sprained my knee in the middle of it. I've been wearing a brace and hobbling around with a cane ever since. It's presented a challenge in the change. But luckily I have a strong network that have pitched in. I'm not complaining. I'm just making an observation that change can be challenging.

It doesn't always have to be a physical change that presents the challenge. In fact, I just mentioned in writing that we've recently moved into a new house. And how it isn't home yet. But that it will be. Not knowing where everything is, or even should be makes a house feel less like a home. But we're gaining on it!

Whether you're changing your location, vocation or simply the stance of your left leg (that blows out your knee) change can be a challenge. Our first featured thread mentions changes made to a design and how that can be a challenge to recover.

We're still sending out Tweets @WebHostingTalk.

Thanks for listening. And I'll see you on the forums!
