Do What You Have To Do

Disruption and transformation of society imposes upon people the necessity to learn how to live in new and changing conditions. Although many of these conditions are external to people, the greatest disruption and most transforming force comes from the changed mind-sets of people. When enough people reach a similar alteration in mind-set, the collective response to the precipitating conditions becomes a driving force in a new direction generating momentum and inertia. Some call this a paradigm shift but many things are labeled paradigm shifts that do not transform society. Malcolm Gladwell's "tipping point" applies but does not convey the magnitude represented by transformation (Tipping Point, 2000). Transformation of society is rare and the results are a different and sustained way of life.
