The only constant is change

Human beings have unbelievable capacity for change. Every day is an opportunity to upgrade ourselves to  newer and better versions, much like software, but different.

The first law of thermodynamics states that the total energy of a closed system is constant. Energy cannot be created nor destroyed – it can only be transformed from one state to another. In this way energy is being conserved.

So invoking the first law of thermodynamics  might be a good explanation for sitting on the couch watching TV instead of going to the gym. However, the human being is not a closed system – there are inputs (e.g. food, external influences, experiences), there is processing (e.g. digestion, interpretation, thoughts) and outputs (e.g. actions, behaviour and <fill in other output here>). How we make meaning of our experiences influences our actions.

Back to my first paragraph – human beings have an unbelievable capacity for change, improvement and becoming better versions of ourselves each day. If something is not or does not feel right, it’s an opportunity for improvement. And this capability is fully within our control.
