Introduction to Systems Thinking Part 7 (parting thoughts)
So, do systems change?
Absolutely. Change is still one of the only constants we have.
And it is not going anywhere.
Throughout your journey, I would invite you to practice non-judgment and to stay humble in order to learn and understand problems. Observe and explore inhibitors through generative dialogues. Think in win-win scenarios for your ecosystem. Use progress to drive you and others, not discourage yourself or others. Remember that proclaiming that nothing has changed because the world is not how you imagine can be detrimental to what you want to achieve. Positive change is happening. Find out how you can be a part of it. If you feel that it is not, find out how you can create it.
In any case, don’t forget the following:
The question is not whether or not you can be a part of changing systems. The question is what would happen if you didn’t try.
