By Bill Burnett and Dave Evans
A New York Times bestseller! At last, a book that shows you how to build – or design – a life you can thrive in, at any age or stage of life.
What exactly is a well-designed life? Its a rich portfolio of experiences, adventures, and failures that teach us important lessons; that result in hardships that make us stronger; that help us know ourselves better; its a life of achievement and satisfactions.
The authors put forth the questions about life that we all ask about our meaning and purpose in the world. Questions such as how do I find a job that I like or maybe even love? Or how can I make a difference in the world? We all want answers to these questions, but were just not sure how to go about finding them, or where or how to begin. And we feel that we dont have the tools to find our way.
Designers love questions, but what they really love is reframing questions. The reframing for the questions What do I want to be when I grow up? is What do I want to grow into? This is what this book promises to show us how to find what we want to do now, at any age, and how to answer who we want to grow into tomorrow. It shows how to design and build our way to a new life, a well-designed life that is productive and evolving; a life filled with the constant possibility of what could be better? surprise!
