The 11 Laws of the Fifth Discipline (Systems thinking)



   The ones that I prefer actually are 6 and 2, the ones that  arouse my curiosity are 3 and 8.  And your ones?

  1. Today's problems come from yesterday's "solutions."

  2. The harder you push, the harder the system pushes back.

  3. Behavior will grow worse before it grows better.

  4. The easy way out usually leads back in.

  5. The cure can be worse than the disease.

  6. Faster is slower.

  7. Cause and effect are not closely related in time and space.

  8. Small changes can produce big results...but the areas of highest leverage are often the least obvious.

  9. You can have your cake and eat it too ---but not all at once.

  10. Dividing an elephant in half does not produce two small elephants.

  11. There is no blame.
