Napoleon Hill  got it right! "First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality.

•    What is it that you want to create for yourself and this world?
•    What contribution do you want to make?
•    How can your words, your actions play a role in the bigger picture of sustainability?

•    What do we want to achieve with this change?
•    Why and how will we know that the change has been achieved?
•    Who is affected by this change, and how will they react to it?
•    Is the desired outcome within our control or do we need help?
