Adapting to Change

If there is anything we can know for certain in this quickly evolving world, it is that things will change…it is inevitable.  Whether it is in your personal or professional life, positive or negative, self initiated or environmental – we need to have mechanisms in place to be able to adapt, to keep us moving forward. … Continue reading Adapting to...

If there is anything we can know for certain in this quickly evolving world, it is that things will changeit is inevitable.  Whether it is in your personal or professional life, positive or negative, self initiated or environmental – we need to have mechanisms in place to be able to adapt, to keep us moving forward.

As with most of us, I have been exposed to many changes over the past few years:

  • My two children were born  (along with many 6 nieces and nephews…yikes!)
  • Vancouver housing prices have soared to over $1.3M for a detached home
  • Career changes from Law Enforcement ⇒ Regulatory Audit ⇒ Security Mgmt
  • this list could go on and on…

Change in itself is not a bad thing, as we need it to be able to continue to progress as a society, stay relevant as a business and to develop as a person.  The biggest challenge is not the actual change, but controlling our reactions to it.  Some will find comfort in analyzing past events to better predict the future; while others will find peace in remaining ignorant to the possibility of change and do everything in their power to try to limit it…not exactly my style.

My suggestion for anybody dealing with change…learn to embrace it and position it to your advantage.  You never know, maybe this is what you needed to push you into the stage in your life.  I know this advice may sound cliché…so here is the second part.  Try to find somebody to embrace it with.  This can be anybody from a trusted friend, to a mentor, co-worker or spouse.  If all goes well, this person can make you step back, take a deep breath and help you get your priorities in order before planning your response. Throughout my journey, finding my way through this crazy place called life, I have had one constant…the love and support of my wife (Julia) and family.  As much as I advocate to enable and leverage change…it seems as though there are some things in life that are best left untouched.



My new best friend

While taking a distance education program, making connections that you can rely on and place trust in can be the difference between success and failure.  Finding that “yin” to your “yang”…finding another that can bring out the best in ones self and allows you to push the boundaries to areas you didn’t even know were … Continue reading My new...

While taking a distance education program, making connections that you can rely on and place trust in can be the difference between success and failure.  Finding that “yin” to your “yang”…finding another that can bring out the best in ones self and allows you to push the boundaries to areas you didn’t even know were possible.  I have found this connection and encourage you to do the same.

Unfortunately, I needed to purchase this connection – please let me introduce you to my new, single button espresso machine…and perhaps my new best friend.

Please don’t take this as my admission of an addiction, or a sign that I am removing myself from the coffee scene in Vancouver…as I assure you I am not.  Coffee in Vancouver is no joking matter.  Think of this as a way for me to continue to enjoy my favorite grinds in and out of the home.

If you are in or around Vancouver…make sure to try out my local favorites

Any favorites you want to tell me about in Vancouver or elsewhere?

Gaming in British Columbia, Canada – I love the industry, I respect the people and I believe in what we do and why we do it.

To give you a bit of context for my career…I currently manage the corporate security programs for the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).  We are mandated by the government to conduct and manage gaming operations within British Columbia.  Our portfolio is huge, as we oversee 42 casinos as well as lottery and online gaming operations, with the sole purpose of providing our net revenue to the provincial government (in a socially responsible manner), for the benefit of our local communities.  Last year we had a record year, giving back over $1.3 billion in net revenue.

My role within BCLC is to make sure we operate in a manner that maintains the trust of our clients.  I do this by ensuring we uphold high levels of integrity in everything we do and by providing safe and secure facilities for our clients and employees.  I can’t imagine us continuing to be this successful if we didn’t have our patrons and staff as a priority…can you?
