Most people are afraid that they might have picked the wrong solution, or that perhaps there is a better solution if they just think about the problem more.

REMEMBER: There is no perfect solution, so when you are judging each potential solution it is unlikely that it will meet all four criteria.If you know how you are going to carry out your solution, you are more likely to follow through.Your plan should include all the steps that you will need to take to carry out the solution, and it should be as specific and concrete as possible.This is not helpful thinking: it is better to act than to do nothing at all.To help you carry out your solution, you can make an action plan.Inequalities persist, with the poorest among us often left behind from the gains that we’ve made.In areas including sanitation, gender equality, maternal and children’s health, and access to family planning, we have a lot more work ahead of us.The United Nations released its annual report on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) today, and it delivers a powerful message: When the international community takes action around a shared agenda, progress happens.Launched by world leaders and the UN in 2000, the MDGs provided eight concrete, measurable goals to alleviate poverty and improve lives around the world by the end of 2015.But the MDGs provide an important reminder that change is possible when we act.Here are 10 highlights from the report: While we have made significant progress under the MDGs, the report also highlights where we need to do much better.
