What does designing your life look like?

This week is the London Design Festival or what started as 100% Design for me over 18 years ago. Design is a love of mine for many more years in fact, although I’ve been a designer for over 30+ years, I recently discovered a more clear purpose.

I bring ‘design thinking’ and the creative process to guide you to see that you CAN create the life you really want. So many people believe that there is no choice, that’s the way it is, that’s the way it’s always been, that they are stuck and don’t know they’re stuck!  Change is hard for most. As a designer, I’ve successfully helped my clients move through changes, see other possibilities and solve a particular problem.

The real process of designing your life is experiencing it, being aware of the choice, self-care, connection, and love.

The design thinking process looks like the 5 steps below but the real process of designing your life is experiencing life, being aware of other choices, self-care, connection, and love. It is an evolving process, not a linear one.  We shared in our recent ‘playshop’ on Happiness that happiness is NOT the destination, it is the WAY, the evolving creation of your life not at the end of it.

Like coaching, it begins with asking the right questions such as “What would it do for me if I solved this problem?” and “How would others around me be impacted if I solved this problem?”

Coaching and ‘design thinking’ are effective approaches to reframing the way we look at the world and how we live, think & behave. This is a powerful tool to design your life.

 

  1. empathy —live in other’s shoes

 

  1. defining the problem — get really clear what the ‘why beneath the why’ is

 

  1. ideate — brainstorm ideas and possible solutions

 

  1. create a plan

 

  1. test the idea and get feedback

Coaching and ‘design thinking’ are effective approaches to reframing the way we look at the world and how we live, think & behave. This is a powerful tool for designing your life.

 If you’ve never experienced coaching, I invite you for a conversation, a chat, a feeling of achievement taking the first step with me. Like design, coaching can be fun, personal and powerful. I’m here to serve you.
