These wise words once penned by Aristotle are still applicable to today’s design world. “Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determine your destiny.” As we forge forward into the ending days of August, Aristotle’s words serve as perfect advice for anyone undertaking a design project. Creating and executing great design is a process and requires all of what Aristotle crafted in his statement. This is simply a reiteration of the design criteria mentioned in earlier posts the last few days.
Today’s design point: never underestimate the value in building a talented, flexible multi-disciplinary team. The art of building a design team goes beyond choosing talent but team members with the ability to be flexible and open to ‘choice, not chance’. As Gino Norris reminds us, “Solutions have a voice - the art is knowing how to listen.”
That’s the wrap for the choices we make. When undergoing any design project that includes construction, find team members that strive for choice, not chance.
