Publisher's Summary

Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans is a self-help guide for people seeking to improve their lives and careers by thinking like designers. The book aims to spread the lessons taught in the authors' Designing Your Life course at Stanford University, which helps students design their postgraduate lives.

Designers see the world differently than most people. Where others will avoid or fear problems, designers seek them out. Where others will perceive failure and give up on a task, designers will prototype solutions and test them until they find the best possible course of action. By applying a designer's unique way of approaching problems to aspects of their lives, people can attain more lasting happiness and fulfillment.

Please note: This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book.
