#1 REQUIREMENT TO GET IMMEDIATE MEASURABLE RESULTS
Don't stop here. Use this success as motivation to drive yourself to become a better version of the person you've become. Just as you did before, make a big picture goal and then break it into daily or weekly goals. You've likely become a goal oriented person through this change, so keep it up.
Whole-systems thinking allows us to co-create rich pictures of the ‘system in question’?—?pictures which can accommodate multiple points of view. Mapping the diversity of perspectives and insights that these pictures offer helps to make it possible for us to act more wisely in the face of uncertainty and in recognition of the limits of our knowing.
Whether the call is for joined-up thinking, ‘multiple ways of knowing’, systemic thinking, an integral approach or holistic thinking, all of them are inviting us into a deeper understanding of the interrelated crises/opportunities we are facing, and thereby to open up the potential of ‘transformative innovation’ as we begin to see the synergies and the potential for creating win-win-win pathways into the future.
If the core of innovation is?—?as Arthur Koestler put it?—?to connect two or more previously unconnected things or issues, then we will innovate more appropriately once we learn from multiple perspectives in order to integrate ecological, social and economic concerns into solutions that are good for people, planet and shared prosperity.
