Bill Burnett and Dave Evans teach the most popular class at Stanford. The course, entitled “Designing Your Life,” aims to reframe the way students think about the question, “How do I live a meaningful life?” Burnett, an atheist, and Evans, a Christian, both believe the key to a joyful and fulfilling life starts with thinking like a designer. As we kick off this new year, enjoy this throwback episode featuring Dave Evans and Bill Burnett as they discuss their methods for living a life worth living.
