Is a sustainable health care reform fix likely?

Given the complexities of the current systemic challenges we face, a sustainable fix for health care reform isn’t seeming likely anytime soon.

And partly because of this, and because in many ways it feels as though we are increasingly facing complicated, seemingly insurmountable crises and challenges these days, people often find themselves abandoning what matters most and escaping in to what doesn’t.

“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

— Albert Einstein 

Sometimes the day to day drudgery of putting one foot in front of the other, and working hard in the direction of our dreams can seem both exhausting and unrewarding and ultimately, unachievable. But that is really one of the core issues with real health care reform. We need to take the long view to achieve real transformational health care reform.

“The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope.”
