How might we apply a UX process to help us shape the lives we want to lead? How might we turn the Discovery phase on ourselves, to better understand the meaningful moments in our everyday lives as well as challenges to navigate? Spend the evening with us working on small exercises, meet like-minded people, and spark interesting discussions!

▶️── 📝 Workshop ───▶️

The aim of this workshop is to create a safe space to reflect and celebrate achievements and gain clarity and motivation around goals. Through a spirit of togetherness and empathy, we can support, inspire, and encourage one another in crafting our future - stepping into the best versions of ourselves and our dream lives.

This will be a collaborative workshop, in which we'll reflect on our individual wins over the past year or month. These can be anything from trying something new, like snowboarding, to reaching a milestone in one's career. We'll also reflect on our challenges, or pain points, areas we may want to improve upon (for example, time management).

Moving from self-reflection into goal-setting, we'll take these insights into defining and designing a roadmap for what we'd like to accomplish moving forward. What are our high-level goals for 2021? And how might we break these down into smaller actionable goals for the month ahead?

Lastly, let's put our dreams into action! Through habit trackers and accountability partners, we can prototype, test, and refine our goals and life designs.
