Executive Director of the Design Program at Stanford University, Bill Burnett shares his thoughts on one of the toughest questions we all face in life: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Burnett believes that “the notion that you need to have a passion and follow it is a destructive idea” and that by using design-thinking principles, you can begin to understand yourself and your goals in order to overcome areas of “decision explosion” in your career.
