10 things I learned from “Designing Your Life”by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans

Preview

Five mindsets:

    1. The curiosity mindset

    You can sometimes run out of passion, but you can never run out of curiosity.

    2. Try stuff: bias to action mindset

    How can we do something before the end of the day? What can we do right now?

    3. Reframe problems: the reframing mindset

    Reframing a problem to have a different perspective. What is the customer's perspective? What is the operations perspective? What is my mother’s perspective? What would this situation look like to a police officer?

    Your own personal point of view is a lens through which you see the world. Other people have their own lenses with their own distortions and colors.

    4. Everything is a process: the awareness mindset

    Know that life and everything inside of life is a process. Embrace the process. Realize that you are on a particular step, even if it is finishing a particular project.

    5. Ask for help: the radical collaboration mindset

    Keep an ask-for-help journal where you can jot down questions you might ask somebody.

    6. Your compass is your general direction

    Evaluate this regularly: every quarter: every 12 week year.

    7. Your practices are what you do on a regular basis.

    8. Prototyping ideas

    Experiment with different options.

    9. There is no one right career/house/spouse/meal.

    Many options are adequate at any given time. Each decision can lead to other decisions. Holding off until you reach a perfect decision is a barrier to progress.

    10. Failures are part of life, embrace them and move on
