Talks at Google Video summary description from youtube:
Dave Evans is the designer of the Apple mouse, co-founder of Electronic Arts, co-developer of Stanford’s most popular class and, now, the co-author of the book based on it: DESIGNING YOUR LIFE: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life (Knopf).
What do you want to do with the rest of your life? Whether you’re fifteen or fifty, this is the question most of us agonize, worry, and speculate about, often leaving us stuck. Tried and tested over nearly a decade in Stanford’s Design program and the subject of two studies proving the efficacy of its approach, DESIGNING YOUR LIFE provides readers with a step-by-step process for figuring out “what they want, who they want to grow into, and how to create a life they love.” Dave Evans visits the Seattle office to talk about the practical applications of the design mindset, the common fallacies of self-improvement, and even some tricks to set yourself on a course to a more enjoyable life immediately.
