Many of us experience life and career transitions — planned and unplanned, periods of feeling stuck, and changes within ourselves, our relationships, and our communities.

Based on the work of Stanford Professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, the Designing Your Life (DYL) Digital Journey provides an opportunity to learn the skill of life design© — a hands-on approach to applying the creative, iterative, human-centered design process to crafting a life in which you can flourish.

Designing Your Life for Everyone – Digital Journey includes:

Three highly interactive virtual workshops to:

  • Explore the social and personal narratives that shape us
  • Work together to identify and reframe dysfunctional beliefs
  • Heighten a mindful awareness of where you are now
  • Use design tools for balance and energy and improvements
  • Frame and reframe problems or areas where you’ve been stuck and engage in radical collaboration and ideation for new solutions.
  • Dig into design tools to increase your creativity and confidence.
  • Use breakout discussions to share and collaborate
  • Design three possible future paths – Odyssey Plans – for your life
  • Learn how to prototype (or do small experiments to learn more) the parts of these lives that are most compelling you
  • Hone your decision-making process, tuning into the wisdom of multiple ways of knowing.
  • Plan prototype conversations to enlist the support you need for your life design.
  • Use design tools to action plan for real change.

Enrollment in the DYL App to use between live sessions to deepen learning and reflection

Between virtual workshops, the DYL app will provide opportunities for daily engagement with additional materials, tools, exercises, and prompts for reflection. We recommend about 30 minutes per day between live sessions.

A Digital Workbook with assessments, exercises, and key points

We will provide a Digital workbook with worksheets to support your assessments and reflections.

A 2-hour post workshop bonus session

The experience includes a 2-hour bonus session with instructors and fellow participants for follow-up and coaching.

Please note that the virtual journey requires the use of technology, so before you sign up for the experience, be sure you have each of the following:

  • A laptop or desktop computer that will allow you to connect to Zoom with a microphone, camera, speaker, trackpad or mouse and keyboard.
  • (optional) A smartphone or Ipad/tablet that will allow you to download the DYL app. The DYL app can also be used on a laptop or desktop computer.
  • An internet connection of sufficient speed and stability to allow you to join Zoom meetings with your video on.
