Designing Your Life: How To Build A Well-Lived, Joyful Life Bill Burnettl

In this book, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise.

The first step in designing your life is to realize that you, like most people, could improve. Perhaps you're one of the two-thirds of American workers who are unhappy with their jobs. Or one of the 15% who hate their jobs. Regardless of where you're at, Burnett and Evans emphasize that designing your life is a continual, iterative process, and there's always room for improvement.

In designing your life, you're working toward using your strengths and passions to get high engagement, high energy, high flow work. But you, like most people, probably have more than one strength. That's how you know there's more than one possible life path for you.

Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, the Silicon Valley innovatorsand Stanford University design educators in their hugely successful course, Designing Your Life, have helped thousands change the way they live. Burnett and Evans believe that in order to change, people need a process--a design process--to help them figure out what they want andhow to create it. In this long-awaited book, Burnett and Evans make clear, step by step, how to think like a designer, and how to design and build a life--at any age--in which we can thrive. Designers don't think their way forward, say Burnett and Evans, designers build their way forward. Rather than dreaming up a lot of fun fantasies that have no relationship to the real world--or the real you--they show us how to build a future brick by brick, how to approach our own life design challenges with the same kind of curiosity and creativity that resulted in thecreation of the lightbulb, the printing press, and the Internet as they give us the tools and show us certain simple "mind-sets," and how to use them to practice life design in your life. Designing Your Life makes clear that you don't need to know your passion to design a life you love. Most people are passionate about many different things, and the only way to know what you really want to do is to prototype some potential lives, try them out, andsee what you really like.--Adapted from dust jacket.

As you can see, the book is more like awell laid road map. Like with the other Book Babble posts, this one is meant tobe a sampler so that you get your hands on the book, use the meticulous worksheets and help yourself design a life that is well-lived and joyful. As theauthors put it:

Design theory, a human-centered, psychology-focused methodology for designing products and services, can also help us build a life that's customized and enjoyable. Burnett and Evans teach you how to do it. 1e1e36bf2d
