In this book Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show us how design thinking can help us create lives that are both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of whom 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.

Where does Designing Your Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I am still not fully done with all exercises, but I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to introspect inwardly and find out what truly matters. This is the first book I have read which suggests not to set long term goals but to approach goals as prototypes/iterations which one needs to improvise on.

What other book might you compare Designing Your Life to and why?


Have you listened to any of Bill Burnett and Dave Evans ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
