The Book



Has the busyness of living overtaken the dreams you once had? Do you grapple with the sense that something is missing? Is it time to take stock and reconnect with who you really want to be — and what you really want to do?

Let’s take stock. LIFE BY DESIGN is a beautifully illustrated workbook that assists you in finding your purpose and creating the life you truly want.

Built on a framework of design thinking, LIFE BY DESIGN is a practical workbook that guides you through applying principles of design to intentional life choices. From career to love to extracurricular pursuits, the exercises in this book help you decide how to innovate and iterate your way to a well-lived life.

By completing one list per week — or the whole workbook in a single weekend — you will map out a clear plan to achieve the happiness you deserve and desire.
