Today in his classic The Problems of Work RON L HUBBARD discusses the parallel world of the START/CHANGE/STOP world.
For START there is CREATION which is usually the mission of the entrepreneur or dreamer. However if he or she can only CREATE or START and does not have the ability or desire to finish the cycle nothing gets done!
Next comes CHANGE which is absolutely necessary for the cycle and parallels the world of SURVIVAL for individuals, companies and governments.
Finally we have STOP which parallels the world of DESTRUCTION as we are seeing today. If we don’t stop the way it is going by instituting CHANGE we will NOT SURVIVE! This is what I teach to my clients.
As Hubbard says: “When we have a society which is very good at STARTING, we have a CREATIVE society. When we have a society which is very good at KEEPING THINGS RUNNING, we have a society which ENDURES. When we have a society which is only capable at STOPPING things, we have a society which is DESTRUCTIVE or which is itself DESTROYED.” (my emphasis)
