FC has a nice article today about a course at Stanford called “Designing your Life” . The article gives a brief overview, and then discusses the pros and cons to the approach.
I think this is pretty great — as students get too little help in figuring out how they can use what they are learning in the real world. This can be seen as a design question and I like using the “design” word. But how do you do a life design?`Well, in fact, you do it using strategic tools.
We are talking about life design here in Tartu and I hope we will put together a fun short course soon. If you are interested, let me know!
