The Seven Deadly Sins
Richard Huntington
The Seven Deadly Sins
Of Planning
Gluttony
Over indulgence to
the point of
extravagance or
waste
Don’t indulge in the planning
echo chamber
Build your own approach from
evidence and experience
Envy
When someone lacks another’s superior quality, achievement or possessions and
desires them
Resist your envy for people that
‘make things’
Making meaning is far more
powerful than simply making
things
Lust
The feeling of intense desire for sex,
power and expensive things
Making the work great sounds
sexy but its not your job
Your job is to make sure the
work solves the problem
Greed
An inordinate or insatiable
longing for wealth, status
and power
Don’t become a servant of your
client’s greed and wishful thinking
Your real client is your customer
not the people that pay you
Sloth
A habitual disinclination to
exertion
You are fucking good, perhaps
you needn’t work so hard
Anxiety maketh the planner
Wrath
Intense response to a
perceived provocation,
hurt or threat
You are rightly angry about
inclusivity and diversity
Improving the inclusivity and
diversity of our work is on you
Pride
Foolish or irrationally corrupt sense of
one’s personal value
You think that we have a god
given right to exist
Changing reality is the only fit
job for a planner
