Not making Getting Outside Money Out of Politics its core message and goal.
Wasting a lot of time on meaningless goals (Occupy Sotheby's over a damn painting. Occupying the harbor..wtf?!)
Not evolving the movement to form an easy to understand core message that ties all the legitimate complaints and problems together.
Not making Occupy's message more Coherent. More coherency means making it easier for others to get on board with the movement instead of being turned off by it.
Weeding out the crazies that try to force themselves into the movement while causing damage to businesses and forcing unnecessary clashes with the police that play right into the hands of the entities that want to see the movement fail. In contrast some of the HONORABLE nonviolent clashes with the police involve the protesting of high education costs and fraudulent Foreclosure Evictions)
Needs better structure. Not in the traditional sense. But being so unstructured allows for crazies to come in and taint the entire perception of the movement.
Post some of your opinions on the mistakes OWS has made so far.
