You can design your lifestyle around the things you love. Here are a few powerful ideas to get started.
Ariana Amorim's insight:
From the post:
In a nutshell, lifestyle design embodies the attempt on your part to design a life of your choosing, whatever that looks like. It’s your life, your plan, and you call the shots.
And if the term lifestyle design throws you off, you might even call it “finding your purpose.”
Lifestyle designers make it their mission to answer the question "Why am I here?" fully and live life on purpose, with purpose.
Journalist John Hockenberry tells a personal story inspired by a pair of flashy wheels in a wheelchair-parts catalogue -- and how they showed him the value of designing a life of intent. (From The Design Studio session at TED2012, guest-curated by Chee Pearlman and David Rockwell.)

Death comes to all of us at some point. Have you thought about how you would feel when the time comes for you to die? Have you considered if you would have any regrets about how you led your life?
A palliative nurse who counseled dying patients in the final weeks of their lives took the liberty to record the most common regrets among them.
I believe in learning from the experiences of others. Having the insights of people who have lived to the end of their lives is strikingly helpful in living our best lives. Rather than reiterate the details of their regrets, I’m going to share them briefly and provide suggestions on how we can ensure that these regrets don’t become our regrets on our deathbeds someday. While we can’t change our past, we can change the present and the future. How our lives pan out from here is dependent on what we do starting today.
Without a clear definition of what success means to you, your dreams are destined to remain just out of reach of reality.
Ultimately success is merely a label with a relative definition based on our individual dreams and priorities in life, but there again unless you have a really clear vision of what you want in life it be difficult to put into words what success means to you.
How can I build a path for the growth of innovation in companies that take us to the welfare and happiness of the people and not exclusively for those who are shareholders of these companies?
Tim Brown presents five ways to practice in our daily lives the principles of Design Thinking:
1 – Be optimistic, collaborative and generative.
2 – Think of life as a prototype.
3 – Don´t ask “what?” ask “why?”.
4 – Demand divergent options.
5 -Once a day, deeply observe the ordinary.
These are some important points to reflect and apply in our daily life if we want to evolve towards sustainable well-being. But they are not just notes for life outside of work. Are notes for ours 24 hours and must be adapted or suited to working environments where we operate, that is, according to our role in organizations.
Ariana Amorim's insight:
We can learn how to practice design thinking principles both at work and at home. We can do more than just design... we can live design.

"I see that life can very much be lived as a form of art. We can each choose to become multidimensional, a unique creative expression, a story of elegance, beauty and grace. The cultivating force is love"
This is one of those gems that don't come along very often. It is moving, written with grace and certainly has something that will connect with anyone who reads this, it's about the story of your life.
Here are some highlights:
**Life is simple. That is the beauty of it. Narratives define the relevance of antagonistic complexity and the centrality of that which is beautifully simple to us, that which in our universe has become tame to us
**Have a narrative for every discipline you care about
**every person that you care about
**every part of your body
**every part of yourself
**every idea you bring into this world
**imagine the world as it would be without your presence
**then imagine if you had infinite love and finite time. Identify an infinite variety of possible quests that relate to the narrative of each
**define your diversification strategy so that you seek returns of the right forms of meaning for who you are and who you wish to become
**review the top pages of that list prioritized by feasibility and your own constraints
**Redesign iteratively until the parts of yourself symphonically agree that having a specific implication in your world would be an act of art worthy of the identity you would wish to gift yourself.
**Leave everything you care about better off to the degree to which it is in your life as a matter of art the grace of only being traceable by our love and not by the degree to which we are a burden to our world
**Be visible only in the love we create in our world so that when we look in the mirror if we see what the world sees then all we will see is love
