“One way of looking at it is 10 years from now these jobs are going to be gone [because of AI] but another way of looking at it is there will be jobs that I can do that haven’t even been invented and some of them are going to be really interesting and awesome jobs, particularly if you’re focused on the creative side of ‘what makes a job worth doing.” – Bill Burnett
Growing up with a love for drawing cars and aeroplanes, Bill Burnett describes his happiness upon discovering that there were people who did that for a living—designers. Now, Burnett is continuing to live out his passion for drawing and building things while serving as the executive director of the Stanford University Design Program and co-author of the NYT bestselling book, Designing Your Life.
In this podcast episode, Burnett speaks to Sean Lee-Davies about the power of designing your own life. He delves into how to design your dream job through a process of actively seeking and co-creating it as well as the importance of curiosity—and how to access it.
