Poetry of the Beginning

June 18, 2019

“The poetry of the beginning is gathering insights early on to develop, for lack of a better word, a kind of a DNA for the project, a pattern out of which everything else will emerge.”

The beginning of an idea or a project is often when we articulate the why; when we define why things matter and the deep reasons that compel us to act. If we are careful to capture and nurture this poetic beginning before we start designing the size of a door, or the color of a website we will remember what matters most and what can most effectively inspire others to join us and improve our idea.

By giving room for ideas to blossom at the beginning of the public process it allows priorities to naturally align while also giving everyone a chance to be heard.
