Why build a hotel when you can just book a room for your trip?

CHANGE creates the possibility. But why is change so difficult for us? There will always be resistance till the end, because change demands activity at that point. However, based on my experience, change makes you feel blissful.

The change will happen anyway, it will find its way regardless of wheater we want it or not. If only we would not obstruct the change, we would be far more competitive in the market. The organizations and people who dare to join the change, will be successful for sure. The others can be successful as well, even if they are not driving the change by themselves.
