Overview

Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, Stanford professors and all-round renaissance men, are known for their #1 New York Times bestseller Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life. Here, Burnett and Evans import the lessons of their book into a comprehensive course, applying rigorous, disciplined methodology from their corporate and academic work to life decisions. While the content is both demanding and resolutely outcome-oriented, the professors' informal, tag-team approach makes it all refreshingly accessible.

The class applies proven design thinking to a full series of topics, from our 'life story' so far to how to shift our thinking towards behaviors likely to deliver the life we'd prefer. Burnett and Evans demonstrate how the only route to life satisfaction is to take proper time to align actions with values, using the science of decision-making.

Burnett and Evans invite us to sit in on a full day alongside a class of willing students of all ages and life stages. Both presenters shun the 'long lecture' approach in favor of interaction, punctuated by what they like to call 'lecturettes'. Whether you choose to participate, pause to complete the exercises, or just observe, you will leave equipped with a full bag of tools and strategies to start designing, then building, the life you really want.
