Review

Praise for Designing Your Life:

"Life has questions. They have answers . . . Learn how to find a fulfilling career . . . learn how to better navigate life’s big moment decisions and kill your ''wicked problems'' dead."
The New York Times
 
"The prototype for a happy life . . . Burnett and Evans show how to apply Stanford''s famous design principles to finding your place in the world, as a recent graduate or mid-career."
—NPR’s  Brian Lehrer

" 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

"Burnett and Evans believe there isn’t one perfect job waiting for us any more than there is one perfect solution to a design problem. Rather, our professional lives are journeys that involve trying lots of jobs in order to find the ones that make us happy. Everyone should read this book!"
—Ina Garten, author of the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks and host of Food Network''s  Barefoot Contessa
 
"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

I got this workbook at the recommendation of a professor - he wanted us to read the accompanying book but I am a kinesthetic learner and wanted to review this tool before recommending it to my clients. Wow! It''s a great exercise in "designing" your life rather than just letting it happen. I''m mid-life and starting a new career that I find incredibly fulfilling, so I''m using this to design the extracurricular parts of my life to fit my work - and I''ve already learned a lot.

I love the idea of this book and putting a lot of different idea forward. However, I realized I was putting more effort into completing the activities and brainstorming than actually living life and jumping in. I know what I want to do, I was just having trouble starting and this workbook was not getting me any closer to cljumpubg in. Eventually I just handed the book over to a friend.

This book has helped me increase the activities in my life that give me greater satisfaction and reduce the activities that drain me. By tracking my activities and scoring them on the "engagement" and "energy" gauges, I have been able to see for myself, what brings me joy and what doesn''t. Then as I enter the next week, I work on doing more of what brings me joy and less of what doesn''t. I''m not one to do workbooks but doing the exercises in this one, is truly helping me increase the quality of my life. Thanks Bill and Dave. I recommend this workbook to anyone wanting increased satisfaction in life and a blueprint for carving new and exciting paths.

I had seen an interview with the two authors and as is often the case, they alluded to much but didn''t say anything really significant, just enough to peak my interest. Had we not been in lockdown, I probably wouldn''t have bought the workbook. I will be meeting a friend to go through a few of the exercises but without a group of people to work with, without the instruction or guidance of the writers, the workbook is really not of any value for me. It may prompt others, and maybe there is more on line but at this point in time, it is not a purchase I believe to be necessary.
