Hope is NOT a Strategy…Really

Hope is NOT a strategy is something we say in the world of Tenacious Change. But what do we mean by that? We mean change is not magic and we can’t wish it into reality. And, of course, there are no special incantations that cause it.

A plan and hard work make change happen. The next time you hear someone describe a change experience by saying something like, “You won’t believe it! It just happened!” don’t be fooled. Look for the people behind the scenes. Look for those who made a plan and worked the plan which produced the change.
Change – whether in an organization, a community, or system – takes a plan and the plan has to be worked, tenaciously.
The people who make and work a plan for change must be tenacious. PowerThesaurus has 1,118 synonyms for the word “tenacious.” Two of them are fearless and brave. These might actually be the first movers of any change movement.

Change doesn’t happen by chance or in isolation through the efforts of just one person. It is a collective effort. However, change often does start because one person stopped hoping it would happen and then found the courage to make and work a plan with others.
