What happens when you treat your life as a design project?

I'd been applying the design process to products for years before I realized,

“These processes are a really good way to design one's life too!”

And I've been the target user for my approach:

Doing the research

Observe yourself, your body, and your assumptions

Setting the strategy

Define your intentions, make goals and projects

Running small experiments

Try things and learn from them

Gathering feedback

Listen to the important people in your life

This fantastic practice has been challenging and rewarding... and it's allowed me to become a change agent in my own life.
