ABSTRACT
The article presents the proposed steps to bring paradigms to a conscious level for substantive change in the U.S. One step is to define what people want to achieve and the criteria for success at an individual and community level. Another is to select the behaviors and explicitly define the associated expected results. It is advised to start again the cycle to re-alarm, evolve and adapt.
