Design a life you love, at any age or stage
What is Life Design© / Designing Your Life?
Many of us experience life transitions — planned and unplanned, periods of feeling stuck, and changes within ourselves, our relationships, and our communities. Designing Your Life (DYL) 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 we love.
In our own lives, and in the lives of our clients, we have found Life Design© to be a creative and flexible approach to navigate personal and professional challenges with more wisdom and ease.
Based on the work of Stanford Professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, Designing Your Life (DYL) demonstrates how design thinking can help us create a life in which we can flourish.
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.
