Great post! I'll be sharing this with some of my staff as we prepare for the summer break and look at how we might create instead of looking for problems to solve. Wonderful ideas!

Glad this helped--it actually helped me too, especially as I processed my thinking in writing this post. Another reason I love blogging. :-)

Let me know how it goes and good luck with the planning!

Have you read "Getting to Maybe"? It doesn't provide a blueprint for positive vision creation, but I found it to be inspiring. My review:

I would also recommend "Solving Tough Problems" by Adam Kahane. My review:

Thank you for this post and the personal illustration. Related to that, I wonder if sometimes we who work at nonprofits are in the unconscious mode of perpetuating the problems we are trying to address, because our work is defined around those problems existing. In other words, if we envision a world without that problem, can we envision ourselves and our purpose in that world as well?
