Designing Your New Work Life

release date: Oct 26, 2021
Designing Your New Work Life
From the authors of the #1 New York Times bestseller Designing Your Life comes a revised, fully up-to-date edition of Designing Your New Work Life, a timely, urgently needed book that shows us how to transform our new uncharted work life into a meaningful dream job or company. With practical, useful tools, tips, and design ideas that show us how to navigate disruption (global, regional, or personal) and create new possibilities for our post-COVID work world and beyond. Bill Burnett and Dave Evans successfully taught graduate and undergraduate students at Stanford University and readers of their best-selling book, Designing Your Life ("The prototype for a happy life." —Brian Lehrer, NPR), that designers don't analyze, worry, think, complain their way forward; they build their way forward. And now more than ever, we all need creative and adaptable tools to cope with the chaos caused by COVID-19. In Designing Your New Work Life, Burnett and Evans show us how design thinking can transform our present job, and how it can improve our experience of work in times of disruption. All disruption is personal, write Burnett and Evans, as with the life-altering global pandemic we are living through now. Designing Your New Work Life makes clear that disruption is the new normal, that it is here to stay and that it is accelerating. And in the book's new chapters, Burnett and Evans show us step by step, how to design our way through disruption and how to stay ahead of it—and thrive. Burnett and Evans's Disruption Design offers us a radical new concept that makes use of the designer mindsets: Curiosity, Reframing, Radical collaboration, Awareness, Bias to action, Storytelling, to find our way through these unchartered times. In Designing Your New Work Life, Burnett and Evans show us, with tools, tips, and design ideas, how we can make new possibilities available even when our lives have been disrupted (be it globally, regionally, or personally), giving us the tools to enjoy the present moment and allowing us to begin to prototype our possible future.

Designing Your Work Life
When Designing Your Life was published in 2016, Stanford’s Bill Burnett and Dave Evans taught readers how to use design thinking to build meaningful, fulfilling lives (“Life has questions. They have answers.” –The New York Times). The book struck a chord, becoming an instant #1 New York Times bestseller. Now, in DESIGNING YOUR WORK LIFE: How to Thrive and Change and Find Happiness at Work they apply that transformative thinking to the place we spend more time than anywhere else: work. DESIGNING YOUR WORK LIFE teaches readers how to create the job they want—without necessarily leaving the job they already have. “Increasingly, it’s up to workers to define their own happiness and success in this ever-moving landscape,” they write, and chapter by chapter, they demonstrate how to build positive change, wherever you are in your career. Whether you want to stay in your job and make it a more meaningful experience, or if you decide it’s time to move on, Evans and Burnett show you how to visualize and build a work-life that is productive, engaged, meaningful, and more fun.

What is artificial intelligence anyway? Will we ultimately merge with technology?While this book touches on many of the technical aspects of these technologies, it has been written to be approachable and does not presuppose a deep technical background on behalf of the reader.The book starts with a day in the life of Sally, who lives a few years in the future.

A consistent question is always posed - where can I learn more about these topics? I decided to write a book that I could not find. One rich with information about the technologies that are shaping our lives, but most importantly, a book that was approachable, and easy to read. I have lived in Silicon Valley most of my life and have worked in large technology companies as well as start-ups. I have worn many hats, from engineer to CTO, entrepreneur to professor, programmer to CIO, and even a futurist. I love technology and hold numerous patents in fields such as the Internet of Things (IoT), connected cars, networking technologies, virtual people, mobile phone technologies, virtual spaces, and more. But, most of all I care about how technology is used to improve the human condition. My views have been shared by Forbes, Fortune, CIO Magazine, Financial Times, The BBC, CNN, Tech Crunch, Politico, San Jose Mercury News, Computer World, New York Times, Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Nikkei Business, Silicon Valley Business Journal, Business Insider, MSNBC, Discovery Channel, History Channel, InfoWeek, Gigaom, MarketWatch, ReadWriteWeb, Mashable, TMCnet, and countless others as well as through a very active social media presence
