Have you ever wonder how certain people succeed in life? How did they create life of their, dreams and you are stuck and cannot create? Try design thinking method. I recently stumble upon the book “Designing your life.”by Stanford professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans.
At last, a book that shows you how to build—design—a life you can thrive in, at any age or stage
Designers create worlds and solve problems using design thinking. Look around your office or home–at the tablet or smartphone you may be holding or the chair you are sitting in. Everything in our lives was designed by someone. And every design starts with a problem that a designer or team of designers seeks to solve.
In five steps, authors give reader tools on how to create life of dreams using design thinking method. How to approach life as a designer: find plenty solutions for problem. The crazier the better!
Start where you are
Your decision and habits are led you to this life. Examine your life story. Accept it and look forward! Be curios on your journey!
Finding compass and build your prototype
You’ll need to examine and shift your thinking, along with work view and life view. After that, you’ll need to create prototype and you’ll need more than one prototype.
Everything you do must bring you more joy then sadness. I feel sorry for guys who are waiting for weekend and counting down days until vacation. However, some aspects of your job can be boring. Focus more on that what brings you joy!
Creating your team (Ask for help)
You’ll need people on your side and with a same attitude towards life as you. You will need someone to exchange new ideas and insights, as well as feedback.
Also, try new things. Who knows where you’ll end up.
Be immune on failure
You’ll fail. Be sure to learn from that fail and move on. Reframe your problems, you can look at them as obsticles. Remebrer, life is a process. Don’t have career for encore. You can have career that you love right now.
