Two Stanford design professors present a book version of a popular elective class about applying design principles to planning your life and executing that plan. The idea boils down to improving your life by monitoring what things are positive in your life, thinking broadly about possibilities to get you those things, prototyping those plans in a low-stakes manner, and continual progress. The authors present exercises in each chapter to help you execute this process. It was a really interesting read and I think the mindset is helpful even though I doubt I’ll do any of the exercises.
