Planning as a practice of presence

The Agile Canvas frames planning as a practice of presence. We dream into the future to reveal new possibilities and questions in the present. We become conscious of our current unknowns, concerns, talents and resources. We stay mindful of everything that shifts and changes as we move forward so we stay agile, proactive, smart and resilient.

As much as we becoming anxious, greedy or passionate about the future we desire, the present is the only time we have and the quality of what comes next often reflects the quality of how we live now. 

Planning done well makes us more present because we become more curious.
