Re-imagine and then take action

This weeks sparkenation.

One of my favourite books is Re-imagine! Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age by Tom Peters. You can find out more about this book and download a chapter here.
For a list of all the books I recommend please go here and put ceo in the password box.

This week think and take action in your own way on the following.

What has become normal in your business? Choose one thing that everyone accepts as normal practice. Get together with stakeholders and Re-imagine it. Think about what you chose in the context of this question: How could this be more valuable to those who have a stake in it?

Then take action. Do it. Leaders don’t wait. Leaders go first. Lead.

Be the difference you want to see in the world
Leader Changing What's Normal Tribe

I liked this "sparkenation" since it supplements the previous one. It could come out as a decent suggestion for the Australian Government according to not being able to understand, what people really want.
I suppose it wouldn't be incorrect to call the law, which government has to deal with, as a specific kind of investment, investment towards country's welfare, since it still results in appropriate outcomes, which are absolutely dependent on how that business is being dealt with. Just, probably, in this case the outcome is more intangible, but still an outcome, which increases welfare of citizens, and which, sooner or later, provides with positive benefit for government itself.

Looking both from ethical and economic perspectives, it's a win-win situation for both sides.

However, just wondered, why then government usually (and in most countries) doesn't or is not able to deal with that kind of "investment" in appropriate way, which would be beneficial for both sides, at least in a long-run. Maybe they have many better ways to "invest" and benefit faster, unfortunately it appears just in a short-run. Or is it a reason, mentioned with an example of Australian Government.
Just wondering...
