Consensus cannot be rushed. Often, it functions smoothly, producing effective, stable results. Sometimes, when difficult situations arise, Consensus requires more time to allow for the creative interplay of ideas. During these times, patience is more advantageous than tense, urgent, or aggressive behavior. Consensus is possible as long as each individual acts patiently and respectfully.

A New Story of Us

Happiness: it’s what we all want. And contrary to the messages advertisers want us to believe, we cannot buy it. So how do we find happiness?

We can start by looking at the way society is currently structured. Do our systems help all of us meet our human needs? Do they foster our sense of compassion? Is everyone treated fairly and justly? Are there widely established mechanisms for building relationships of trust?

We can also look at our view of humankind. Do we hold a positive understanding of who we are and what we are here to do?

Metta Center’s short video “A New Story of Us” answers these questions, highlighting a path to the happiness and peace we’re all seeking.

We Are All Contributors

There is often a need for specific analysis and strategy about the local area.

Ask yourself:

  • What are the vital issues in this town, state or region?
  • Who holds the power?
  • What is already being done?
  • Where do we start?


Doing such an analysis of your own situation with your BUD will often lead to connecting to other like minded people who are working on the same issues you have isolated in your research.

If you have developed a Strategy based BUD and figured out a way to work in your local community and unify efforts please let The Transition know and apply to be a Volunteer/Consultant.

Key Things You Need to Remember

1. Go all in — commit to finishing Your Action Plan no matter what

2. Trust and believe, trust the process and take actionremember_post_it.jpg

3. When going through the phases keep in mind the question to ask yourself is NOT "Does this pertain to me?" the question is instead "How does this pertain to me?"

4. Rinse and repeat once you have gone through the phases go through them again from time to time to refresh and see things with a new perspective. (Check back often to see if there have been updates due to new research as well!)

5. Celebrate all wins, big or small.

6. If you miss one day, just pick yourself up and continue the next day.

Daunting Goals Can Be Achieved in Bite-Sized Chunks

Big ideas can be intimidating, but even our biggest and most daunting goals can be achieved if we simply break it up into bite-sized chunks.


The most fundamental of all problems is how to grow wisely and how to use the resources we have to grow quickly and smartly. We must take this one step at a time, and each step no matter how boring or difficult it may seem is fundamental and necessary to our real success. Each of these phases might be compared to growing a crop. We have to till soil, plant seed, water and weed, harvest, organize, store and even make recipes and feed each other and the world with the crop. So each of those levels aforementioned could be broken down into sub levels, where we work in accordance with the natural forces of sociology and psychology and economics in order to bring up a crop being an achievement of an end solution or goal. This portion of the website maps out the path you need to take depending on the direction you chose. Like a guidebook, this section of the website we call Your Action Plan describes the milestones and choices necessary to take on each unique user's path. You will learn where the traps and snags are, as well as where the well-trodden and proven paths can be found. You will find firsthand stories told by others who have taken the journey before you and be able to learn from their missteps. As well as discover the methods they have found that work for them.

Non-Zero Day System

Everyone has days when things don’t go as planned. Maybe you messed up at work, or had a fight with your partner, are dealing with some weather-related blues, or perhaps you just can’t find the motivation to seize the day—and you don’t really know why. A no_more_zero_days.pngReddit user named ryans01 shared a lengthy comment jam packed with self-help tips in response to a post made by a fellow Reddit user. 

The original post reads: “I have lots of things I want to learn and do with my life, but I can’t even bring myself to do what I’m required to do… I have no money, no one who really cares about me, shitty grades, shitty diet and exercise, and the worst part of it? It’s not even that I hate any of this. I hate feeling like this, but not even enough to do something about it.”

This is the advice ryans01 shared that made his reply go viral all over the internet:

“My name’s Ryan and I live in Canada. Just moved to a new city for a dream job that I got because of the rules below. I owe a lot of my success to people much cooler, kinder, more loving and greater than me. When I get the chance to maybe let a little bit of help out, it’s a way of thanking them,” he wrote.

He then delivered four simple rules.

  1. Have as many ‘Non Zero Days’ as you can.
  2. Be grateful to the three you’s (Past, Present and Future you)
  3. Forgive
  4. Exercise and read books. (You get endorphins and exercise your mind)

His concept of Non-Zero Days in particular has really resonated with many people: “There are no more zero days. What’s a zero day? A zero day is when you don’t do a single f**king thing towards whatever dream or goal or want or whatever that you got going on. No more zeros,” ryans01 wrote.
