Begin with doubt

Francis Bacon said, ‘If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.’

This principle lends itself to extension.

If a person will begin with answers, they shall end up with questions. If they will be content to begin with questions, they shall end in answers.

If a team begins with too much order, they shall likely end in chaos. If they will be content to begin with a little chaos, they shall settle into order.

Certainty is built around a kernel of ambiguity.
