A guidebook on openness - principles, methodologies, and particularly the mindset and philosophy of being open. Embracing ‘openness’ in all its forms is about a personal relationship of embracing openness.

Fear obstructs openness more than anything else. Fear tells you that you don’t know who’s out there. You don’t know what they’ll do. And you definitely don’t know what that will do to your project.

Openness is about embracing what might be, rather than protecting what is. There is an exciting world of possibility out there, in here, or in the spaces in between. All sorts of merry and wonderful things might happen. In fact, amazing things are happening all the time.

Openness at its best is uncomfortable. It’s disruptive. It requires you to reassess your own position. Openness isn’t straightforward. But it’s worth it.
