Start with the opposite

Rather than starting with thinking “what can we add now”, you can start on the other end of the scale:

Imagine that reality was completely different (better). Now what would you be willing to give up from that dream, to bring your current reality closer to that dream?

It’s part of imagining losing what you don’t have.


My neighbourhood (Mayorstone, Limerick, Ireland) is divided by a road network. The Roads Engineer doesn’t want to compromise on the Road Network for a community to be thriving.

But let’s start from the other end of the spectrum: imagine this was a neighbourhood that was primarily used on foot, then on bike, and lastly to get your car into your driveway.

What do you have to take away from that vision, to bring it a little closer to our current reality?
