Inspiration for life

Get inspired to define a vision for your life and actually live it.

Life [experience] design is a collection of lighthearted experiences and resources based on the design process to bring awareness to your present moments, get clarity on your whats and whys, and ultimately help you live the fullest expression of your life.

You’re the hero of your story, but even heroes need motivation from time to time. Consider this yours.

 

Why is this based on a design process?

As a user experience designer, I’ve found the design process invaluable to understand context, drive clarity towards and execute on a vision. It helps me frame decisions so given multiple solutions I can land on the one that feels best and works with any constraints the project is facing.

Having lived my own life on autopilot up until I was 25 and just beginning to pivot to a design career, I slowly started to become more aware of how my daily decisions influenced the story of my life. A lot of personal development books and exercises later, I realized I could tap into a framework I already use and apply it to something called life.

That’s what I want to share with you.

The Process

Define

Get clarity on your values, the story around the life you’ve lived so far, what fills you up and what drains you are all part of finding out what truly moves you. Then, it’s figuring out where you want to go.

Discover

Once you’ve defined your past and present on your terms, discover the gaps between your current situation and your ideal life. What does it take to get where you want to go? What’s your version of getting there? What do you want and need to learn along the way, in a way that works best for you?

Design

Turn those dreams into plans. You’ll discover that there are many paths you could take, but which one to choose? Map out what your first few steps look like and when you plan to get there. What can you commit to, and in what order? What’s the flow of your journey?

Deliver

Now it’s time to take the first step of your designed plan. Then another step. It may feel intimidating, exciting, or both. Check in with yourself and see if you want to keep going or pivot.

Life is a journey, and the unexpected will happen. You may need to redefine, rediscover or redesign. The beauty is that you’ll always move toward what feels right.
