    Interesting article. Thanks for sharing.

    When considering our slow progress in letting go of our dependence on fossil fuels, I find Nos. 7 and 8 very relevant.
    7. “It is always easier to talk about change than to make it.” — Alvin Toffler
    8. “It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out nor more doubtful of success nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order of things.” — Machiavelli

    8. “It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out nor more doubtful of success nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order of things.” — Machiavelli

    If I remember correctly, Machiavelli said that if you are going to change in the workplace – like declare some positions redundant – do it all in one shot and do it early. Otherwise, the uncertainty will have a negative impact on morale and the attempts at change will fail [or sabotaged].
