Tag Archives: social structures


In wondering about the process of bringing about change,changedownload my mind turned to what elements or factors are involved.  Just looking at four possibilities began to clarify things for me:

1-    Time – a personal experience-based understanding of how long it should take to accomplish a particular change

2-    Realm – What social structures are involved (i.e. corporate, private institutions)

3-    Approach – Inclusive or exclusive of human psyche (how humans behave in response to change)

4-    Model – While the internet, for instance, has had an impact on formats & technology for organizing change, hierarchy structures versus collaborative structures seem basic options

I read this on a blog today and it seemed to fit my ponderings on this subject:

“One doesn’t wake up and realize that the world is fundamentally flawed and in need for a change in direction towards a greater good; one starts exploring how flawed the world is and sees the opportunities for change.” [From An Active Mind – Blog by Joel Firenze – July 11, 2014 post: Patient Idealism]
