What's holding you back?

Eric Chan Wei Chiang's curator insight, July 12, 11:24 AM

I have recently been offered two amazing opportunities. One involves planning an interdisciplinary project on the Putrajaya Lake at the heart of Malaysia's capital and the other is to forge a research collaboration with Japanese from Neo-Morgan Laboratory Incorporated.

 

The excerpts in this scoop reflect my current feelings, "with great opportunity comes great apprehension." Apprehension generates resisters which can be considered the polar opposites of change agents.

 

Nonetheless, I already had a great chance to view how influential resisters who would threaten projects at their outset can be dealt with. The only certainty here is that I must rise up to the challenge and explore these opportunities.
