When you can't figure out the next move.

Updated: Apr 2, 2020

What do we tell confusion and frustration when we can't figure out how to get unstuck?

Ever said to yourself I just don't know what the next step is?

Try Design Thinking.


If you're like me you are more used to thinking along these lines. What should I do next? Let me figure it all out from A to Z while brushing my teeth and if it doesn't make sense just gonna stay right where I am.


Then last summer I came across this resource, the Designing Your Life book from Bill Burnett and David Evans. From their site:


"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."

The strategies and methods they provide helped set me on a different professional path in a more fulfilling role. What I found most valuable is how the approach can be applied to almost any problem. Having a new set of tools creates freedom to tackle all kinds of projects.


For a quick summary of the book, check out this video on YouTube.


The Designing Your Life site has lots of great free resources. There is also an audio book available on Audible which you can listen to for free with the one month trial.


Happy Designing!
