When I read a list of issues like this, I can see that each item on
the list might be important, but I have no confidence that this list
has identified the most important issues, either in general terms or
in relation to a specific situation. So the list looks pretty
arbitrary. Some people would call it a laundry list - it just gets
more and more things added to the end of the list, and then we decide
the list has got too long so we cross a few things off or try to
combine several items into one. This kind of thinking is very common,
but I experience it as the very antithesis of systems thinking.
