Design Your (Mid) Life – It’s never too late! The need to design our lives doesn’t suddenly disappear when we reach a certain age or achieve a certain milestone. We have to keep checking in with ourselves and be willing to ask the tough questions. Happiness = our values + engaging in activities we like + using our strengths in our work + contributing to the world around us. If you feel your happiness meter is off and have no idea what next, it is time to dive into your life design.
