The only sure thing we know about change is that it's inevitable. It's gonna happen. It part of life. It's sometimes welcome, it's sometimes unwelcome. Either way, we've gotta embrace it because through change, opportunity is lurking.
Sir David Brailsford of Team Sky said this week (on Sky pulling out as main sponsor):
'You've got to be calm - in life the goalposts are going to move - it's not a question of if they move but when. We've reacted very calmly and change brings opportunities. We build things, we're creators and we see it as an opportunity. It's been an amazing run, but equally you look to the future and think, 'Ok, let's move on, let's build something.'
