My post employment “retirement” adventure into the unknown.
I’m an “Intrepid Elder” charting a course of discovery. What will I do when employment no longer consumes my life? Do I have a purpose and a life plan? No. Am I confident my financial resources will carry through to the end? No. I’ve no idea where I’m headed, but… everything is about to change.
I heard an interview with Bill Burnett and Dave Evans. They were discussing their new book Designing Your Life How to Build a Well Lived Joyful Life. As I listened I thought, “This is exactly what I need!”

I bought the book and decided my life needed the methods taught at Stanford school of design. I figured the same methods used to come-up with Apple’s mouse could certainly transform my life.
I share my excitement with anyone who’ll listen. I’m looking for partners to keep me on track and motivated. The book advises to create a Designing Your Life community of practice. The authors have begun to create this community. They are posting videos to help people understand how to work the model. I learned that most people I spoke with were are also interested in designing their lives. All of a sudden, BAM! I knew I wanted to participate in an Oklahoma Designing Your Life community of support. Designing Your Life “Design Teams” are the core of the process. The teams consist of 5-6 individuals working the model. Are you interested being part of a team? click here.
