The Designing Your Life team is always delighted when our community shares their story with us or the world. We keep a keen eye out on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook in particular. This post by Timothée Toste in Switzerland might be the inspiration you need during self-isolation. An excerpt:

“Right now is a great time for gaining some perspective and reframing what we want our lives to feel like. And this book, DESIGNING YOUR LIFE by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans is a great resource for this. I’ve had this book for more than 3 years and never opened it until a few weeks ago. I made it a habit of reading a chapter a day on my balcony after lunch, enjoying the sun and usually with my kids around; the youngest going after my highlighters, bookmark and coffee mug.
