In the business world, the concept of ‘pivoting’ means adapting and modifying based on changes in the market. Pivoting is important for businesses to avoid being stuck in one direction when faced with a continually changing environment.

It is also an important concept for us as individuals. Our lives and environments are constantly changing and we do not always know the path that will take us in our life. Being able to pivot helps us build our resilience.

For kids approaching the end of high school and considering their career path, pivoting becomes particularly critical. If their post-secondary education or career goals do not come to fruition, are they able to adapt and be comfortable with change? The alternative is an intense amount of stress from trying to stay on the same path.
