by Gary Dwyer

How to design or re-design the life of a creative person. Creative people can create balance in their lives if they are willing to take the trouble to design their lives. This short book will help with the process. It means that every once in a while creative people have to stop and take stock. Taking the time to revisit the huge questions: Where am I? Where do I want to go? How do I get there? What do I really want and why? This essay is part narrative, part personal history, part workbook and it is up to the reader to figure out what parts to use.
Creative people spend our early years designing, building and solving problems for other people. And then one day we realize we have neglected ourselves. We need to design our own lives, and the prospect terrifies us. No matter how much experience we have, how good we are at solving other people’s problems, the mere thought of working on our own problems often prevents us from doing anything about them. This book will help you work with the process of discovering what is next for you.
