Don't worry Ben, at the rate the SQL Server Team are releasing new versions of SQL Server, we'll have seasonal releases in no time. Windows 10 is almost there as it is.

If I were to list three self identifying traits on my personal profile or resume, Adaptability would be one of them. It's good to have.

I don't mind change -- so long as its documented!
The state / lack of "documentation" (yes that is documentation in quotes) these days is ridiculous. Probably because I do not count videos of happy people who slap together 100,000 lines of code pulled from five different sources and proclaim, "Don't worry how it works, it just does!" as helpful. But I digress...

Yes, that's part of the problem. Management needs to inform staff when change is coming, or even better, include staff in on the planning process. People learn faster and retain better when they're learning is focused and goal oriented. Managers shouldn't just say "Here is a subscription to Lynda.com, so you can maybe learn some stuff when you have free time." and then put their staff out to pasture to passively and randomly graze at their own will.

One thing is for sure and that is things change. I agree the focus is on how we can adapt and respond to it rather than being consumed with anxiety or anger. I'm by disposition usually against any kind of change - even good ones. It just isn't in my nature to like many quick changes. The longer you are in the workforce the more likely you are to be that way. I try to keep an open mind and adapt - basically I've got a lot better at coping mechanisms to help ease the change and settle in.
