If a start
Of art
Came through the sky today
What would you say?

If a bend
Of your hand
Surprised you on the way
What would you say?

Can an other
Be there too
With you for a day?
What would you say?

Open, sesame.
Does open sesayu?
Shall we play?
What do you say?

A friend asked this question via LinkedIn :

Question Details:
How do you implement changes with 100% success?

What are the most frequently overlooked change success factors?

And here’s my off-the-top-of-the-head response:

Authorship: When someone feels the change is theirs, they will make it work.

Partnership: When people feel they are pulling for a common goal, they will make it work.

Ongoing sensing and adjustment: When we keep in touch with a changing reality, we have a better chance of having things go the way we wish them to. “Strategy disolves when the first shot is fired.”

Oh! re: “frequently overlooked” –
Select to change something in the direction it is already going – anyone who wants to have the ice caps melt may win right now. Easier to find a parade and get in front of it.

Say you want as the change what is already the case but just hasn’t been seen yet. When we call out an existing but hidden reality, then it comes into view, we say there is a “change” but not in reality, only in viewing. Sometimes that is much easier than changing reality.
