I may, I might, I must
If you will tell me why the fen
appears impassable, I then
will tell you why I think that I
can get across it if I try.
Marianne Moore (1887-1972)
The Global Campaign against Headache is a global project, and an umbrella for many smaller projects.
Looked at as a whole, the Campaign is vastly ambitious, and beyond what might ever be achieved.
This does not mean it is non-viable or misconceived. Success is not dependent on completion of the entire project as laid out here. Each element of the Campaign is a useful end in itself, contributing in some way to better lives of those affected by headache disorders.
Nevertheless, changing the world is a challenging task. Rather than suffer Descartes' paralysis from uncertainty, Lifting The Burden adopts the indomitable spirit invoked by American poetess, Marianne Moore [box], and set about the task with its aspirational vision.
It took the three stages of the task apart into multiple steps, all with achievable objectives that, when reassembled at some time in the future, would lead to that vision.
Each step of the Global Campaign, each small part achieved, is a success.
