BE WILLING TO ACCEPT CHANGE.
This is my new (and daily) mantra. I have to say it over and over, because I am notoriously resistant to change. Always have been.
Everything about my professional world is changing--book-selling, publishing, newspapering. I feel like we're in the middle of another Industrial Revolution and no one knows exactly where it's going. I've resisted the digital/electronic thing as much as possible. But I've finally just had to tell myself, "Sweetheart"--I like to call myself Sweetheart for self-esteem purposes--"Sweetheart, the horse is out of the barn. You gotta accept that fact and try to make all this strange new-ness work for you."
So there we are. Check back with me in ten years to see how I did.
