    4 New Social Media Marketing Trends Every CEO Needs To Know
    CEO.com
    As a CEO, we play many roles. We are the idea generator, the visionary, the spokesperson, and of course, the ultimate multi-tasker.

Resistance to change is not so much a negative as it is a fear of the unknown: "If I do change, or even make suggested adjustments, what's that going to do to my patterned lifestyle?" Yes, the fear of change — whatever your age — can be a block that limits your ability to truly live in the present.
