The authors of #1 New York Times bestseller Designing Your Life taught readers how to use design thinking to build meaningful, fulfilling lives. Now, in the original DESIGNING YOUR WORK LIFE, they apply that transformative thinking to the place we spend more time than anywhere else-work-and show readers how to create the job they want, without necessarily leaving the job they already have.Designing Your Work Life teaches readers how to create the job they want-without necessarily leaving the job they already have.“Increasingly, it’s up to workers to define their own happiness and success in this ever-moving landscape,” they write, and chapter by chapter, they demonstrate how to build positive change, wherever you are in your career. Whether you want to stay in your job and make it a more meaningful experience, or if you decide it’s time to move on, Evans and Burnett show you how to visualize and build a work-life that is productive, engaged, meaningful, and more fun.About the AuthorBILL BURNETT is the executive director of the Stanford Design Program, and was a product leader for Apple's groundbreaking PowerBook business. He directs the undergraduate and graduate program in design at Stanford. DAVE EVANS is the Codirector of the Stanford Life Design Lab, and a cofounder of Electronic Arts, one of the world's largest interactive entertainment companies. He holds a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.IntroductionMaking It Work at WorkWe wrote a book.Not this book, another book. Maybe you read it, maybe you didn’t. In that book, we taught people how to use design thinking to design their lives. We showed a lot of people how to get off the couch and prototype alternate versions of their lives and their careers. We’ve taught workshops based on the book, and we’ve met and heard from thousands of readers whose lives were changed for the better. They’ve shared their stories with us, and each of their stories is now part of our story. Many of the people who read and loved Designing Your Life were people in transition: entering one of life’s many inflection points. They needed help with choosing their next step-where to go, what to do, and in some cases, who to be. Their work involved trying to imagine a different kind of future or a way to make an unrealized dream real.That book was about imagining.This book is about making it real.We also heard from people who said the Odyssey Plans we suggested were great and all, but it wasn’t feasible for them to run off and become a scuba instructor in Bimini because of, well, things like insurance, mortgages, utility bills, and the children who were still in school.Those people asked us for a different kind of book.They asked for a book that would meet them where they are now, and provide tools and ideas that would help them thrive at work.Look, today’s workplace is in continual flux. As companies evolve to be more and more nimble and shift faster and faster to meet changing markets, the workplace is less and less predictable. Increasingly, it’s up to workers to define their own happiness and success in this ever-moving landscape. It’s also up to smart managers and companies to meet their workers halfway and offer resources (such as this book) that can help create a culture that allows their ever-changing workers to adapt to the ever-changing demands of the workplace as it adapts to the ever-changing demands of the market. Mostly, though, people need tools to invent their own success-over and over-as they change and grow as humans. (Doubly so for the growing ranks of us who are self-employed.) And it’s becoming clear that Millennials and Gen Z workers especially demand a work experience that is meaningful and that gives them a sense that they are having an impact in the world.We all want our days infused with meaning and impact.Most of us spend most of our days at work.
