Thanks François Chartrand for sharing an excellent set of principles for design work. I really liked how you blended the core principles of mindfulness (focusing on the breath to come back to the “present”, keeping the bigger picture in perspective at all times, balancing oneself) in the process.
I learned something new from your article. When I think of the stages of design (and this includes “anything” not just product or service design) — the phases of seeing the big picture, asking questions, narrowing down the options, prototyping, testing — at every phase I can bring in mindfulness and integrate it.
A great organising principle.
