Use Design Thinking To Help You Become Unstuck

Do you feel stuck and anxious about the future? Do you feel like you should know what you want to do with your life but you aren’t sure which direction to head?

Stanford professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans are joining CreativeLive to teach a class based on their #1 New York Times bestseller, Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life.

By leveraging proven design thinking principles used by leading companies such as IDEO, IBM, and Apple, they will teach you how to apply that same methodology to making your biggest life decisions. Regardless of age, income, or stage in life, their unique approach to designing your life will give you the actionable tools necessary for becoming unstuck and creating a more meaningful life. You will learn how to ask the right questions, eliminate old ideas that are not working and test new approaches to your life.

In this class, you will learn how to:

  • Closely examine the “life story” that has brought you to where you are today.
  • Shift your thinking and instead of being part of the society factory, learn how to focus on life as a journey to be experienced fully, rather than a means to an end.
  • Align your ‘life’ views and ‘work’ view, because more often than not making money and having meaning in your life are not always perfectly aligned.
  • Fixing dysfunctional attitudes by understanding the root of things that might be blocking you.
  • Understand what gives you energy and what sucks you dry, so you can design a life that fills you up.

Tent City 3 Survey

Dear UW Community,

We are second-year graduate students in the Community-Oriented Public Health Practice program.

We seek the views of UW students, faculty and staff about how well the TC3 stay went.

Please complete this short questionnaire.

It should take 5-10 minutes of your time and your responses will remain anonymous.

Your responses will contribute greatly to the power and strength of our evaluation!

Gratefully,

A Discussion with Community Members Experiencing Homelessness

A Discussion with Community Members Experiencing Homelessness

As you likely already know, the University of Washington is hosting Tent City 3 during this Winter Quarter. This collaboration provides an unprecedented opportunity for our campus community to work with Tent City residents and other groups dedicated to homeless advocacy. The Carlson Center is proud to be hosting events this quarter that aim to deepen our academic and personal understanding of homelessness—from the systemic and structural causes of homelessness to the deep impact that experiencing homelessness has on people and their lives. Events are listed below, and are open to the public. Please forward widely.

In Our Words: A Discussion with Community Members Experiencing Homelessness

The Carlson Center is privileged to host a panel discussion with residents of Tent City 3 and members of Real Change’s Homeless Speakers Bureau. Please join us in the Unity Ballroom at the Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center on Thursday, February 16 from 5-7pm to learn more about the factors and issues that contribute to and surround the day to day lives of those who are homeless, as graciously shared by individuals who are experiencing homelessness.

Real Change provides immediate employment opportunities for low-income and homeless individuals, while taking action for economic, social, and racial justice. Their Homeless Speakers Bureau includes homeless and formerly homeless people who speak about their experiences in order to educate the public, facilitate conversation, and inspire social action in regards to homelessness. The panel discussion will include stories from each of our panel participants and opportunities for questions and answers.

Understanding issues such as homelessness on a human level is a crucial first step in addressing its social and systemic foundations. Please join us to learn from community members who are willing to share their lived experiences with the campus community. A light dinner will be served.

We would love to know who’s coming! Please take a moment to RSVP HERE.
