Embrace the Unknown

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” – George Bernard Shaw

Everything changes. Nothing stays the same, and yet change can bring uncertainty & anxiety. How do we embrace change, and the uncertainty & anxiety that comes with it? How can we embrace the unknown rather than fear it? Do we accept change more readily when we are in charge of it, and resist when someone else or some other entity is? People have been dealing with questions such as these for hundreds of years -- that much hasn't changed! Participate in this TEDx event as professors, best selling authors, students and your neighbors discuss embracing the unknown and how the unknown, change, and uncertainty can be empowering, exciting, and be an avenue for new opportunities. This event will be informative, thought-provoking and entertaining. You won’t want to miss it!
