If you are a student at Stanford University, this title may sound familiar. Bill Burnett and Dave Evans have taken the class, Designing Your Life, and brought it to life for the masses.  Their premise rests on the foundation of design itself; solving a problem.  They’ll guide you through design thinking and how it can help you create a meaningful life, full of creativity, fulfillment, and joy, no matter who you are or what you’ve gone through!  Using design tools such as experimentation, prototyping, and wayfinding, Burnett and Evans have shown that the only failure in life is settling for a life that is “good enough.”
