Our life is our biggest project; but there’s no roadmap, and the rules are ever changing. This is where design and design thinking comes to help. We can think about our life, its constraints and opportunities, with tools borrowed from the design world. You can apply these tools to your life, get familiar with them, and use them to solve any problem (at work or elsewhere).
