Changing the paradigm

I just came across this and thought it might be encouraging to those of you who are game-changers…

In every system, the hardest thing to change can be the paradigm, but it can also happen fast.  According to systems thinker and ecologist Donella Meadows:

“Keep pointing at anomalies and failures in the old paradigm. 

Keep speaking loudly and with assurance from the new one.  

Insert people with the new paradigm in places of public visibility and power. 

Don’t waste time with reactionaries; work with active change agents, and the vast middle

ground of open people.”
