#1 New York Times Bestseller 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 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. "Designing Your Life walks readers through the process of building a satisfying, meaningful life by approaching the challenge the way a designer would. Experimentation. Wayfinding. Prototyping. Constant iteration. You should read the book. Everyone else will." —Daniel Pink, bestselling author of Drive “This [is] the career book of the next decade and . . . the go-to book that is read as a rite of passage whenever someone is ready to create a life they love.” —David Kelley, Founder of IDEO “An empowering book based on their popular class of the same name at Stanford University . . . Perhaps the book’s most important lesson is that the only failure is settling for a life that makes one unhappy. With useful fact-finding exercises, an empathetic tone, and sensible advice, this book will easily earn a place among career-finding classics.” —Publishers Weekly From the Hardcover edition.

Design Your Life is a series of irreverent and realistic snapshots about objects and how we interact with them. By leading design thinker Ellen Lupton and her twin sister Julia Lupton, it shows how design is about much more than what's bought at high-end stores or the modern look at IKEA. Design is critical thinking: a way to look at the world and wonder why things work, and why they don't. Illustrated with original paintings of objects both ordinary and odd, Design Your Life casts a sharp eye on everything from roller bags, bras, toilet paper, and stuffed animals to parenting, piles, porches, and potted plants. Using humor and insight Ellen and Julia explore the practical side of everyday design, looking at how it impacts your life in unexpected ways and what you can do about it. Speaking to the popular interest in design as well as people's desire to make their own way through a mass-produced world, this thoughtful book takes a fresh and humorous approach to make some serious points about the impact of design on our lives. Find out what's wrong with the bras, pillows, potted plants, and the other hopeless stuff you use, buy, clean, water, or put away everyday. Discover how to secretly control the actions of those around you by choosing and placing objects carefully. Find out how roller bags are threatening civilization, and how the layout of your own house might be making you miserable. Use the tools of self-publishing to take the power of branding into your own hands. Taking a fresh, funny look at parenthood, housekeeping, entertaining, time management, crafting, and more, Design Your Life shows you how to evaluate the things you use, and how to recognize forms of order that secretly inhabit the messes of daily life, be it a cluttered room or a busy schedule. Use this book to gain control over your environment and tap into the power of design to communicate with friends, family, and the world.

"A joyful, inspirational guide to building the life you've always dreamed of, using the principles and creative process of an award-winning product designer. Life, just like a design problem, is full of constraints--time, money, age, location, and circumstances.

Design the Life You Love uses a simple but proven creative thinking and design process to give ordinary people new tools to think about life differently, and also includes fascinating examples from the world of art and design that relate to each step of the process, plus guided creative exercises. Turn constraints into opportunities with optimism and holistic thinking using four simple steps: taking the whole apart, forming a new point of view, putting it back together, and giving it form.

The first edition, released in 1995, was lauded by seasoned practitioners and beginners alike. And no wonder. While most of the early English-language books on feng shui were dauntingly mystical or relied on complex calculations or culturally specific design practices, Feng Shui Made Easy took a more holistic approach, clearly explaining the fundamentals while guiding readers on an inner journey of understanding. Thoughtfully written and beautifully illustrated, the book is structured around an “architecture of consciousness” that is really the inner landscape. The book explores each “house” of the bagua—the chart representing one’s journey through life; relationships with parents, loved ones, and community; creativity; spirituality; and connectedness to the source of life—and the symbolism of the corresponding I Ching trigram. Feng Shui Made Easy helps readers discover the nature of these connections, as well as learn what obstructions must be removed to change fixed patterns of behavior and restore balance, harmony, and inner peace—a process that, when combined with external adjustments, results in increased success and lasting change in all areas of life. This revised edition expands on the author’s intuitive approach with new sections on health, children’s environments, and ecological concerns and sustainable practices. The author also corrects misconceptions about feng shui and uses fascinating case studies to share valuable insights he gained from interactions with his clients and readers.

Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett | Book Summary How does one define a well-lived, joyful life? What does it take to have one? Is it even possible to have one, or change a less successful life for the better?These are the some of the common questions people from all walks of life ask themselves every day. Everyone from successful professionals to entry level graduates ask themselves what defines a life full of satisfaction and joy. Sadly, the answer is not a direct one.Designing Your Life tries to offer another view to the problem.This book is specifically about living life by design. Authors Bill Burnett and Joel Evans believe that anyone can design the life they love and live it to the fullest. The book further pushes forth the view that there isn't one life to live but many, and that the ideals of success and happiness that most people have are not exactly true. The book opens with real-life examples of people who carried the wrong ideals of a well lived and successful life well into the latter part of their life and careers, only stopping to realise something was wrong when a part of them suddenly felt incomplete. The concept of design is not easily understood by everyday folks. Most people think of it from an engineering point of view and imagine it involves the creation of new products, technology, and services. What they never imagine is that design can be used to create new lives. This is the crooked belief that the book sets out to straighten through its explanation of design and the way it can be used to remodel and reframe life and people's views of it.The correlation between designers and their love for problems is examined in another section, with the book attributing the creation of most, if not everything, people use today to designers' ideas of using problems to get day-to-day solutions. Designers are always looking for questions so that they can find answers to their design ideas. Readers learn the concept of reframing and how every common question gets reframed in life design so as to find new and more helpful answers for it. The reframing process is further explained as taking new information about a problem, choosing a new point of view and prototyping it afresh to find new solutions. It is through this process that most design ideas are born.Following their step-by-step approach, the authors continue to introduce the main topic of the book, the Life Design process. They show how it can be used to better the life one's already living or create another one based on mere possibilities. They also explain its reliance on asking questions, researching, and team work.The book also introduces a different type of thinking: thinking like a designer. Before deciding to use the Life Design process, the book provides readers with the five mindsets they are supposed to have and shows how they are best applied.
