Tiago Forte spent time in the Peace Corps before returning to San Francisco and joining a product development consulting firm. There he learned about design and its value in helping some of the world’s most innovative companies. At start-ups in Silicon Valley, and later starting his own business, Forte Labs, his obsession with a single question (“What is the future of work?”) began.
Design Your Work chronicles his journey to answer that question, in essays written between 2014 and 2016. Previously published on the Praxis blog, they have been edited and updated for clarity and accuracy.
The essays touch on topics ranging from meditation to science fiction, habit formation to network science, metaphysics to gratitude, organizational theory to email workflows, innovation to mood-hacking, and much more.
