Lot’s of listening
The life of planner can sometimes - just as the cliché says - be one of the most varied jobs you can get. I had one of those days yesterday. I’m doing a lot of very different projects at the moment so my day started with a lot of very different listening and questioning. I started talking visionary architecture with some of the hipster architects of Copenhagen; afterwards I went to a school talking to 13 years olds on modern technology, “file sharing” and their willingness to exercise more (it’s an assignment for The National Board of Health), after this I went to a meeting with a bank talking changing lifecycles and the meaning for different loan types and finally I got to talk a bit about Chlamydia with a doctor.
