the first line on the board is the most difficult one. students and professional find them in jeopardy while starting a design.
conceptual understanding before starting a project is must. we may device the primary architectural piece into a 'main situation'. then gradually can think on the design. in this phase we will need a 'mind map'. mind mapping is better process, coz here we think radially not linearly.
after knowing the 'playing ground' subsantially we may formulate a 'design concept'. it can be analogical, metaphorical, essences, directly responssive or can be ideals.

Sheik Ashik, I was just picking up on your first sentence "the first line on the board is the most difficult one." :)))

Perhaps my own mnemonic describes the first step of any venture better:- "ADOPT / ADEPT / ADAPT" One adopts an idea, then one becomes skilled in applying the idea and then one can create new things using the idea.

In a sense, the first line or the first thought, or the first decision seems to be difficult because you are trying to create something from the chaos of nature. In fact any first step of a journey, is the one where you decide to make the journey into the unknown of the chaos of nature.

Therefore, one should keep in mind that the decision is about making journey and not how one makes the journey or when one makes the journey or where one makes the journey because these are the next steps and one should keep focused upon that first step and not confuse or mix it up with the next steps. :)))
