Change is one of those things that scares people. Most people love routine and avoid change at every turn.
They stay in a job for years longer than they should simply because, even though they may hate it, it’s familiar.
Changing anything is difficult, and while as people we feel that, organisations know that. As a result, they demotivate people by making the process complicated and time-consuming.
They know that taking that first step is tough mentally and if they can make it hard you’re less likely to take that first step.
Neuroscience research has shown uncertainty registers in our brain much like an error does.
The thought needs to be corrected before we can feel comfortable again, so as a result, our human nature means we’d rather not have that feeling hanging around so we avoid change.
We also fear change because we fear that we might lose what's associated with that change. Logic is ignored by our aversion to loss.
Research has shown that losing gamblers at a horse track are most likely to bet the long shots, at terrible odds, on the last race of the day. Faced with the realisation of loss they are willing to bet on a horse with 20:1 odds, a bet they'd never walk in thinking they'd make--all because of our aversion to loss.
The same can be said of most software companies, they will often take an ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it approach,’ they look at change as a risk rather than an opportunity.
easyFBT was born out of two people’s desire to change, both their situations and FBT software.
"Give we grew out of some big changes, changing software to suit a client is not something we are afraid of. And in the ever-changing world of FBT you need to be able to embrace change as a part of life," Co-Founder Matthew Smith says.
With the FBT reporting period approaching, don’t be afraid of change.
"At One Plus One Solutions Pty Limited we are 100% committed to creating solutions that improve the way you do business so we love to get your feedback and suggestions," Smith says.
