Oscillation or Advancement?

The structure at play in a person's life or an organization causes one of two types of behavior – oscillation or advancement.

With oscillation, the tendency is to swing back and forth between competing goals such as change and stability or short- and long-term growth. If there is advancement, the tendency is to consistently move forward with each achievement serving as a foundation for further achievements.

By examining the structures in play and utilizing the creative process, you can replace your oscillating structures with advancing ones.
