‘Life has questions. They have answers’ New York Times We will spend up to 120,000 hours at work in our lifetimes. But how best to use those hours is one of our most challenging questions. We all want to find meaning at work, but our managers can’t get it for us. And as companies work to be more nimble and shift according to changing markets, the workplace is increasingly unpredictable. It’s up to each of us to define and find our own happiness in this ever-moving landscape, which is rich with opportunity and possibility. Designing Your Work Life helps you understand the politics and psychology of work and equips you with the ‘design thinking’ principles – the innovative methodology pioneered at Stanford that has been fuelling the growth of Silicon Valley – to build a working life that works for you. Designers don't analyse, worry, think, complain their way forward; they build their way forward. Perfect for anyone hoping to improve their current job, aiming for a promotion or even switching career paths, as well as recent graduates thinking about their future, Designing Your Work Life is a deeply empowering read. Part business book, part inspirational and innovative self-help, this book will help you answer one of life’s most challenging questions.
Designing Your Life puts forward the idea that the same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products and spaces can be used to build towards a better life and career by a design of your own making. ‘[Designing Your Life] ...

"Many people operate under the dysfunctional belief that they just need to find out what they are passionate about. Once they know their passion, everything else will somehow magically fall into place. We hate this idea for one very good reason: most people don't know their passion." - Bill Burnett "Our problems become our story, and we can all get stuck in our stories. Deciding" - Bill Burnett "Designers don't agonize. They don't dream about what could have been. They don't spin their wheels. And they don't waste their futures by hoping for a better past. Life designers see the adventure in whatever life they are currently building and living into. This is how you choose happiness." - Bill Burnett ***Bill Burnett & Dave Evans' book, "Designing your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life" offers practical, easy-to-follow advice to attain the life you always wanted--even if you don't know what that is yet. Don't miss this step-by-step guide to Designing your Life.*** What Will You Learn from Reading This Book? How to use design thinking to get unstuck and figure out what to do with your life.

In Designing Your Perfect Dental Practice: Foundations of Clinical Success, Dr. Jay M. Hislop, D.D.S., provides the design by which today's fee-for-service dentist can create their own perfect dental practice In 17 chapters (including 26 standard operating procedures) directed at both the general dentist and specialist, this book shows how today's dentist can design their own future, establish a philosophy to make it come true, then translate that philosophy into practical, usable business management solutions. The result is an easy-to-read, straightforward guide equally as valuable for the recent graduate as the veteran looking to put their practice into prime, resalable form. Hislop involves the reader by telling the fictitious story of a fellow dentist, Steve, who is simply overwhelmed and seeing his practice and life approaching toward a crisis point. Steve is skillfully interwoven into the nonfiction material, adding insight and some levity to the excellent text. What other benefits can result from applying Hislop's guidelines? More efficient operations, better patient outcomes, higher profits, reduction in malpractice risk, true quality control on referrals, clear communication between doctors and their staff, better staff relations, faster patient service, better patient compliance and retention, outstanding practice growth, peace of mind that the practice philosophy is understood and followed, no patients "lost to recall" or "lost to referral," an environment with which managed care can't compete, and increased referrals for specialists. The $50 digital book is a great Christmas gift for a fellow dentist.
When you are designing your production support process, it is important to
remember that you have a life outside of work. Failure to recognize this fact could
result in your designing a process that isn't sustainable over a long period of time.

Design Your Life is a series of irreverent and realistic snapshots about objects and how we interact with them. By leading design thinker Ellen Lupton and her twin sister Julia Lupton, it shows how design is about much more than what's bought at high-end stores or the modern look at IKEA. Design is critical thinking: a way to look at the world and wonder why things work, and why they don't. Illustrated with original paintings of objects both ordinary and odd, Design Your Life casts a sharp eye on everything from roller bags, bras, toilet paper, and stuffed animals to parenting, piles, porches, and potted plants. Using humor and insight Ellen and Julia explore the practical side of everyday design, looking at how it impacts your life in unexpected ways and what you can do about it. Speaking to the popular interest in design as well as people's desire to make their own way through a mass-produced world, this thoughtful book takes a fresh and humorous approach to make some serious points about the impact of design on our lives. Find out what's wrong with the bras, pillows, potted plants, and the other hopeless stuff you use, buy, clean, water, or put away everyday. Discover how to secretly control the actions of those around you by choosing and placing objects carefully. Find out how roller bags are threatening civilization, and how the layout of your own house might be making you miserable. Use the tools of self-publishing to take the power of branding into your own hands. Taking a fresh, funny look at parenthood, housekeeping, entertaining, time management, crafting, and more, Design Your Life shows you how to evaluate the things you use, and how to recognize forms of order that secretly inhabit the messes of daily life, be it a cluttered room or a busy schedule. Use this book to gain control over your environment and tap into the power of design to communicate with friends, family, and the world.

By putting people at the centre of interactive design, user experience (UX) techniques are now right at the heart of digital media design and development. As a designer, you need to create work that will impact positively on everyone who is exposed to it.

The authors explore the use of scenarios, personas and prototyping in idea development, and will help you get the most out of the latest tools and techniques to produce interactive designs that users will love. With practical projects to get you started, and stunning examples from some of today's most innovative studios, this is an essential introduction to modern UXD.
