Bernard Roth (@) – academic director and one of the founders the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (d.school) – has recently published The Achievement Book where he explains how to unlock the power of design thinking to help you achieving goals.
From the official description:
Back in the 1960s, mechanical engineer Bernard Roth met many engineers in the Silicon Valley, who worked for big companies such as Hewlett-Packard, and had dreams of starting their own companies. People just talked about it, and nothing happened. This observation inspired Roth to start teaching a class at Stanford in which each student had to choose a project having to do with their own life—writing a cookbook, building a robot, running a marathon—the only requirement was that the project was deeply personal. Now, for the first time, Roth brings his mantra of “Doing is Everything” to his inspirational and valuable new book, The Achievement Habit: Stop Wishing, Start Doing, and Take Command of Your Life.
