Find the leverage points – and decide how and where to intervene

Work out where you might be most effective in transforming a given situation. In any system there are both blockages and gaps—see what you can unlock in the former and where you can lever open the latter. Find conditions you can affect, and leave aside those you cannot access or situations so intransigent that they need to be bypassed or just left behind. Determine which changes might take great effort and those which are easier; things that make small changes and things that set off cascades.
