Before a change effort ask the question how bad is it? What symptoms of suffering are being experienced? How bad is it really? How many undesirable effects are present? Is it intolerable?
If it is not that bad then don’t change or talk about it or think about it just stay status quo.
How would one map the current reality? Ask questions and make a list a good list not one of subjective complaints but real suffering impacts and effects that challenge the quality of life or that threaten the goal of your life.
This is a brainstorm or improv exercise to get this done. Change does not happen overnight there needs to be a place of departure –away from and a place of arrival –going to. Going to has value, advantages and benefits that the last place did not have.
