GOOD STUFF TO SUSTAIN GOOD STUFF

1. Good causes
Be discerning on what you put your energy into.
Specialise in something.
East Timor was my entry into activism.

2. Good context
Focus energy and action on situations where there is a real opportunity for change – topical issues, where you have something unique to contribute and there is a decision to be made by the public, business or politicians.
Saving the rail.

3. Good alternatives
Authentic alternatives are always hard to find.
My parents place.

4. Good info& analysis
Don’t rush into:
- assuming the worst
- sharing sensitive information
- making claims that can’t be substantiated with robust evidence.
Pulling off effective actions can sometimes be luck but more often takes much planning.

5. Good communication
Don’t preach to the converted,
Find out what the skeptical, ignorant and apathetic care about and address that stuff creatively
Waihopai was relatively successful, because it was well planned and communicated.

6. Good attitude
Stay humble, don’t sweat the small stuff, anger is a gift, use it wisely.
Having courage is important, having patience and grace even more so.

7. Good friends & good times
PowerShift is a great example of friends doing amazing things together.
Find a few key people you can trust to both support and challenge you.
Have fun!
