Political primary celebrations are nice. Wouldn’t it be great if we took more occasions to celebrate real accomplishments, with parties and gusto?
These would be real accomplishments which benefit many people. Things like building a park, or the introduction of a mass market plug-in hybrid car, or hitting a target for carbon reduction (to slow climate change), or national health care, or halving homelessness, or a stronger sense of community through better ways for people to be engaged.
I believe the ProxThink Growth Model may provide a framework for ways to approach a number of these situations. People can start by creating more ProxMonitors to help us track situations, and RelatePoints to aid collaboration and communication. Then Difference Agreements can be crafted which help valuable differences persist, adapt and change as needed. People can ProxReward (proxri) as one part of implementing Difference Agreements.
