A joyful, inspirational guide to building the life you've always dreamed of, using the principles and creative process of an award-winning product designer. Life, just like a design problem, is full of constraints-time, money, age, location, and circumstances. You can’t have everything, so you have to be creative to make what you want and what you need co-exist. Design the Life You Love is a joyful, inspirational guide to building the life you’ve always wanted, using the principles and creative process of an award-winning product designer. Through four steps that reveal hidden skills and wisdom, anyone can design a life they love!From the Trade Paperback edition.

I like that “Design the Life You Love” is focused around an individuals creativity. This isn’t just another self help book that tells you how to change. This is a self help book that makes you think and decide on what you want your life to look like. The book is very simple, there isn’t a whole lot to it. I really like that it is to bring out the creative side of a person. It is supposed to help them decide what is best for them and how they will change things in their own lives. I think there are so pages that are devoted for play and light heartedness but then there are pages that really make a person think about what they want. This is definitely a book that I like working with.
