A Well Designed Life, with Xylys

Design is more than squiggles on a piece of paper or fabrics pinned on mannequins; it is the purposeful and premeditated intention behind an action. Similarly, ‘Design thinking’ is a great tool used to innovate user-focused solutions to a posed challenge. Adopting the mindset of a designer puts you in the driver’s seat of making life work. It doesn’t take much to see how this can also be a stellar approach to living a ‘well-designed’, more productive life.

See The World Through Others’ Eyes

Get up, walk out, look around – find similar and comparable situations around you to inspire results. Look for patterns or behaviour that will help you gain insights and spot opportunities for your life. Learnings from these approaches do not have to be replicated to the T, but you may find that there is some concept or methodology that can work with your specific needs or projects.

Brainstorm Like A Champ

Brainstorming is a great tool, but much like fight club, certain rules must apply – refrain from judgement, give reign to wild ideas, build on all shapes and sizes of thoughts but never lose sight of the core idea. In design thinking, it is important to give in to the power of ‘yes’ and see where the journey takes you.

Prototype Early And Adapt Quickly

Fail quickly and fail often. In fact, celebrate failure. Spending more time doesn’t always guarantee a better solution. So rather than planning for long hours, get your idea out there, get feedback and iterate quickly. This method helps you arrive at a workable solution faster. Don’t be afraid to get things wrong as it is from our mistakes that we learn and progress.

Evolve Constantly

Evolution is integral to using a design thinking approach to your life. Every course you take purposefully improves upon the last one. Integrate all your learnings to do things faster and better each time. These small adaptations can do wonders in producing desirable results.
