An Alternative to ‘Polishing the Status Quo’

The existing state of affairs in the environment, education, healthcare, workers rights, nutrition, transportation, energy or in many other areas leads people to look for change.

Focusing on the preferred future rather than just steps away from the current situation has the potential to lead to transformative change.   Further, when a community of people focus on a preferred future – they can work together to bring about transformative change.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. didn’t just want to move away from the status quo.  He had a DREAM.  Dreams motivate and inspire.

Below you will find a few of the posts I have written that support the concept of focusing on the preferred future rather than just polishing the status quo.
