What are Deliberate Patterns?

I wrote an introduction to the idea of Deliberate Patterns and why they are better than habits here:

Patterns & Pattern Languages

“A pattern language is an organized and coherent set of patterns, each of which describes a problem and the core of a solution that can be used in many ways within a specific field of expertise. The term was coined by architect Christopher Alexander and popularized by his 1977 book A Pattern Language.

A pattern language can also be an attempt to express the deeper wisdom of what brings aliveness within a particular field of human endeavor, through a set of interconnected patterns. Aliveness is one placeholder term for "the quality that has no name": a sense of wholeness, spirit, or grace, that while of varying form, is precise and empirically verifiable.[1] Alexander claims that ordinary people can use this design approach to successfully solve very large, complex design problems.” (
