Designing Your Work Life

We spend one third of our lives at work, whether it’s at a job we love or one we can’t wait to leave. As the job market shifts with the increase of automation and artificial intelligence, a flexible mindset is more important than ever. Stanford professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans (authors of the No. 1 New York Times best seller Designing Your Life) believe we can transform our work experience by building and utilizing a designer mindset. They argue that much of our unhappiness and difficulty is caused by “dysfunctional beliefs” that limit our potential. 

In the forthcoming Designing Your Work Life, Burnett and Evens offer strategies on everything work related—from how to quit to how to get the job we want—and everything in between. Join INFORUM as Bill Burnett and Dave Evans teach us how design thinking can transform our experience of work and our outlook on life, without necessarily changing the job we have.
