S. Gilbert’s Fundamental Questions: What do you most want to gain? What do you most cherish and want not to lose?

This is a good day to ask our "Fundamental Questions" again.
What do you and your colleagues, friends, and family care most about transforming?  about preserving?

Steve Gilbert's Fundamental Questions:  

1.  What do you most want to gain?  
2.  What do you most cherish and want not to lose? 

These two simple, powerful questions can help people identify their most important shared goals and commitments as well as significant differences in their hopes and fears.  Can help build a solid foundation based on these principles for change: 

  • Respect past accomplishments, long-lasting values, diverse needs and abilities.
  • Welcome new ideas and resources, but recognize and resist fads and hyperbole.
  • Eagerly explore, thoughtfully select, and frugally adapt, new options.

Information technology can be the excuse and the means to make almost any kinds of change in education and elsewhere.  
Encourage.  Enable.  Engage.
