About The Book

Title: Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life

Author: Bill Burnett & Dave Evans

Publication Date: 2016

Description: 

Designers create worlds and solve problems using design thinking. Look around your office or home--at the tablet or smartphone you may be holding or the chair you are sitting in. Everything in our lives was designed by someone. And every design starts with a problem that a designer or team of designers seeks to solve.

In this book, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise.

 About the ICF NYC Book Club

The ICF NYC Book Club is an opportunity for attendees to delve deeper into their learning from the book and to share highlights from what they read, implications for their coaching practice, and more. Book club meetings are not book previews or presentations and active participation and contribution is expected from all attendees. 

Meeting Guidelines:

  • Out of respect for our facilitator and other attendees, you are expected to have read the book, or at a minimum, significant portions of it, prior to attending so that meaning, intent and application may be discussed with depth.  Familiarity with the content enables a much more meaningful exchange and conversation.

  • As with any virtual call, please be prepared to have your video and audio on, with limited distraction.  Turn off all notifications.  

  • In order to receive CCEU credit, you must be present and actively participate.

  • Come in your pajamas! We don’t care about how you look or if you’re munching, only the intellectual contribution you bring.

Meetings will be held consistently on the second Monday of each month at 8 AM (except where may be otherwise indicated). 

Attendance at every meeting is not necessary.  You may participate based upon your preference for the book.  The intended purpose of this offering is to broaden and deepen our knowledge of current practices in the coaching profession and in the business world.

Please register early!  If registration is low, or non-existent, for any specific book, we will revisit the selection and float a poll to the membership to select a replacement book.  We therefore encourage participants to register early for meetings so that we may assess interest at an early stage.
