Five Disciplines for Making Change Happen
Making positive change happen is hard work. Here are five disciplines that I see effective change-makers adopt that sustain their efforts to make an outsized impact and make the journey more enjoyable:
- Make it a worthwhile challenge
We rise to the challenge when it’s something worthwhile rising for. Pursue the change you want to see in the world: the big question that gets you rising out of bed every day.
- Play a long game
When you play a long game, you’re investing now to get the reward down the track. Exponential gains kick in at the end, not at the beginning. Extend your horizons.
- Travel together
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. Build a coalition of people who get you, get the vision, and get the work that needs to be done. Share the load and the fun.
- Run experiments
Experiments are the engine of change. When we run intelligent experiments - thoughtful, deliberate tests of an idea - we accelerate learning and progress.
- Share your story
As Brene Brown says, “stories are data with a soul”. When you keep sharing your story of what you’re pursuing, learning and creating, you’ll attract people who want to help.
