Thanks to a retweet by @engrg1, I read this excerpt from a book. But I was a bit concerned when I read it.
I do not have the full context of the chapter, but I think that the paragraph stands alone well.
I fully agree with the last sentence (the bits underlined at the end). It is a call to do with what you have instead of making excuses. Find the time! Raise the money! Create buy-in and ownership! Make the effort!
But I wonder about the long term wisdom of just focusing on the HOWs of change and not the WHYs of it. I am not referring to the resistive WHYs. I am referring to the WHYs that provide a mission and drive things forward.
Those WHYs fuel the HOWs of finding the time, raising the money, creating buy-in and ownership, and making the effort.
