Frameworks for Change
Engaging Imagination and Inspiring a Sense of Hope and Possibility
We are “pushed” into a new future by events outside our control and “pulled” by what inspires and motivates us. Prior decisions and entrenched habits “weigh” against our moving in a new direction.
Inquiring publicly about hopes and dreams can bring deeply held values into public view and help align values and action in a more meaningful direction.
Listening to and respecting what gives meaning and purpose to each other’s lives expands collective inspiration and builds willingness to move forward together.
Why do you believe people “do what they do?”
What motivates and inspires you most right now? What is the most important direction you have set for your life this year? (PULL of future)
What factors outside your control also push in that same direction? Push against that direction? (PUSH of present)
What habits are likely to keep you from making that change? (WEIGHT of past)
