How to Make Positive Change

I am not sure where this came from, but I think it is a useful list for thinking about how to plan large scale positive changes towards sustainability.

To make change you need the following:

  1. Discipline yourself in selection of Issues for action -- Limit your attention to issues you can influence
  2. Discipline yourself in pursuit of issues over an extended time
  3. Development of detailed analysis of the problem and preferred solution(s) -- Who are the stake holders? Why is the system operating as it currently does?
  4. Develop a long term strategy
  5. Develop multi-faceted strategy -- What if plan A fails? B? and so on...
  6. Develop coalitions, collaborations, and partnerships with like-minded groups, organizations and individuals
  7. Develop mutual communication, understanding and cooperation with like-minded movements in other countries.
