prioritize and schedule - what to do first? what is more urgent? what can wait? how do we decide?
Many will agree that it is a steep climb to enable a "new TRA" to fulfill the promise it may one day. Yet resources are finite.
One way we can approach prioritizing actions is based on time-to-implement, doing those that can be done quickly first
I think it is important to make a difference quickly that members can see and feel, to encourage more to step up and contribute; and so that we can get a much-needed relief from the policies of the past.
Certain things, especially those that required external organizations (like the NFPA) take longer time, but require planning, wordcraft, establishing alliances, assembling compelling evidence, etc. to be effective. These may be a ongoing activities, with a series of milestones so that success of a proposal being adopted is more likely
Other things require considerable investment, such that fund raising is required, and the sooner such projects are identified (and the more support can be elicited from the members) the faster it can be accomplished. But how to prioritize projects, and how to decide to pursue some in parrallel? Or will one compete with another for funding and participation?
