Author: Bill Burnett,Dave Evans

Design Thinking hilft, kreative Lösungen für komplexe Probleme zu finden. Die Autoren übertragen dieses Prinzip auf das Leben und die Berufswahl.

How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life
Author: Bill Burnett,Dave Evans
#1 New York Times Bestseller At last, a book that shows you how to build—design—a life you can thrive in, at any age or stage Designers create worlds and solve problems using design thinking. Look around your office or home—at the tablet or smartphone you may be holding or the chair you are sitting in. Everything in our lives was designed by someone. And every design starts with a problem that a designer or team of designers seeks to solve. In this book, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise. "Designing Your Life walks readers through the process of building a satisfying, meaningful life by approaching the challenge the way a designer would. Experimentation. Wayfinding. Prototyping. Constant iteration. You should read the book. Everyone else will." —Daniel Pink, bestselling author of Drive “This [is] the career book of the next decade and . . . the go-to book that is read as a rite of passage whenever someone is ready to create a life they love.” —David Kelley, Founder of IDEO “An empowering book based on their popular class of the same name at Stanford University . . . Perhaps the book’s most important lesson is that the only failure is settling for a life that makes one unhappy. With useful fact-finding exercises, an empathetic tone, and sensible advice, this book will easily earn a place among career-finding classics.” —Publishers Weekly From the Hardcover edition.

"Many people operate under the dysfunctional belief that they just need to find out what they are passionate about. Once they know their passion, everything else will somehow magically fall into place. We hate this idea for one very good reason: most people don't know their passion." - Bill Burnett "Our problems become our story, and we can all get stuck in our stories. Deciding" - Bill Burnett "Designers don't agonize. They don't dream about what could have been. They don't spin their wheels. And they don't waste their futures by hoping for a better past. Life designers see the adventure in whatever life they are currently building and living into. This is how you choose happiness." - Bill Burnett ***Bill Burnett & Dave Evans' book, "Designing your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life" offers practical, easy-to-follow advice to attain the life you always wanted--even if you don't know what that is yet.

Der Psychologieprofessor Barry Schwartz findet in seinem TED-Book ›Warum wir arbeiten‹ eine ganz überraschende, komplexe und eindringliche Antwort auf diese auf den ersten Blick so simple Frage. Er zerstört den Mythos, dass es bei der Arbeit nur ums Geldverdienen gehe und fordert – unterstützt durch zahlreiche Studien und Anekdoten –, dass wir neue Wege finden müssen, um unser Verhältnis zur Arbeit neu zu definieren. Schwartz nimmt uns mit in Krankenhäuser und Friseursalons, Fabriken und Vorstandsetagen und zeigt, welche unterschiedlichen Formen die Arbeit annehmen kann, welche Funktion sie für unsere Kultur innehat und wie jeder von uns seinen eigenen Weg zum Glück am Arbeitsplatz findet.
Designing Your Life with the Ancient Art of Placement
Author: William Spear
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
The first edition, released in 1995, was lauded by seasoned practitioners and beginners alike. And no wonder. While most of the early English-language books on feng shui were dauntingly mystical or relied on complex calculations or culturally specific design practices, Feng Shui Made Easy took a more holistic approach, clearly explaining the fundamentals while guiding readers on an inner journey of understanding. Thoughtfully written and beautifully illustrated, the book is structured around an “architecture of consciousness” that is really the inner landscape. The book explores each “house” of the bagua—the chart representing one’s journey through life; relationships with parents, loved ones, and community; creativity; spirituality; and connectedness to the source of life—and the symbolism of the corresponding I Ching trigram. Feng Shui Made Easy helps readers discover the nature of these connections, as well as learn what obstructions must be removed to change fixed patterns of behavior and restore balance, harmony, and inner peace—a process that, when combined with external adjustments, results in increased success and lasting change in all areas of life. This revised edition expands on the author’s intuitive approach with new sections on health, children’s environments, and ecological concerns and sustainable practices. The author also corrects misconceptions about feng shui and uses fascinating case studies to share valuable insights he gained from interactions with his clients and readers. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Designing Your Life
Author: Neil Taylor
Publisher: Athena PressPub Company
'What if you are all designers? You don't design cups or jet engines; you design your own lives.' There is an 'ah!' moment in Clues from the Universe when two characters meet in a therapist's waiting room. One is an attractive female lawyer facing burnout, and the other is a wifeless Lotto winner whose marriage hit the rocks on a Caribbean cruise. When we realise the connectivity between these and Neil Taylor's other disparate characters - all cogs in the Langian metropolitan machine - this highly intelligent life guide speaks a wonderfully clear and optimistic message. How we live is a product of our own design, and it is up to us to look without and within for clues about ways to overcome fear and negative competitiveness, and learn how to operate collectively. The author's work as a counsellor and team coach, and his intimate knowledge of corporate gamesmanship, together with his sharp lawyer's mind and excellent narrative style, make this a handbook to cherish. Don't skim: digest and enjoy, and reap the rewards.

Wie Top-Firmen und Führungskräfte zum Erfolg inspirieren
Author: Simon Sinek
Publisher: Redline Wirtschaft
Category: Business & Economics
Am Beginn einer jeden Erfolgsgeschichte steht eine einfache Frage: Warum? Warum sind manche Organisationen profitabler als andere? Warum werden einige Führungskräfte von ihren Mitarbeitern mehr geschätzt und andere weniger? Warum sind manche Menschen in der Lage, immer und immer wieder erfolgreich zu sein? In seinem Bestseller, der nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache erscheint, zeigt Simon Sinek, dass erfolgreiche Persönlichkeiten wie Martin Luther King Jr. oder Steve Jobs alle nach demselben, natürlichen Muster dachten, handelten und kommunizierten. Am Anfang ihres Wirkens stand immer die Frage nach dem Warum. Mit diesem Ansatz schafften sie es, bedeutende Dinge zu vollbringen und darüber hinaus ihre Mitstreiter zu inspirieren. Sich an diesen Vorbildern orientierend, gibt Sinek in seinem Ratgeber nun Führungskräften, Unternehmen, aber auch Privatpersonen einen Leitfaden an die Hand, der zum endgültigen Erfolg verhilft. Dabei erklärt er das so erfolgreiche Muster, welches dem goldenen Schnitt ähnlich ist, und auf den drei elementaren Fragen basiert: Warum? Wie? Was? Dadurch eröffnen sich dem Leser völlig neue Möglichkeiten und er wird lernen, dass die Motivierung von Mitarbeitern viel zielführender ist als ihre Manipulation! Und dies geht ganz einfach: einfach »Warum?« fragen.

Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett | Book Summary How does one define a well-lived, joyful life? What does it take to have one? Is it even possible to have one, or change a less successful life for the better?These are the some of the common questions people from all walks of life ask themselves every day. Everyone from successful professionals to entry level graduates ask themselves what defines a life full of satisfaction and joy. Sadly, the answer is not a direct one.Designing Your Life tries to offer another view to the problem.This book is specifically about living life by design. Authors Bill Burnett and Joel Evans believe that anyone can design the life they love and live it to the fullest. The book further pushes forth the view that there isn't one life to live but many, and that the ideals of success and happiness that most people have are not exactly true. The book opens with real-life examples of people who carried the wrong ideals of a well lived and successful life well into the latter part of their life and careers, only stopping to realise something was wrong when a part of them suddenly felt incomplete. The concept of design is not easily understood by everyday folks. Most people think of it from an engineering point of view and imagine it involves the creation of new products, technology, and services. What they never imagine is that design can be used to create new lives. This is the crooked belief that the book sets out to straighten through its explanation of design and the way it can be used to remodel and reframe life and people's views of it.The correlation between designers and their love for problems is examined in another section, with the book attributing the creation of most, if not everything, people use today to designers' ideas of using problems to get day-to-day solutions. Designers are always looking for questions so that they can find answers to their design ideas. Readers learn the concept of reframing and how every common question gets reframed in life design so as to find new and more helpful answers for it. The reframing process is further explained as taking new information about a problem, choosing a new point of view and prototyping it afresh to find new solutions. It is through this process that most design ideas are born.Following their step-by-step approach, the authors continue to introduce the main topic of the book, the Life Design process. They show how it can be used to better the life one's already living or create another one based on mere possibilities. They also explain its reliance on asking questions, researching, and team work.The book also introduces a different type of thinking: thinking like a designer. Before deciding to use the Life Design process, the book provides readers with the five mindsets they are supposed to have and shows how they are best applied.
