Designing belonging.



What is belonging?

Belonging is a whole lot of different things to different people, but in simple terms:

To feel belonging = the inner certainty that this life, even though it might not be easy, is the one you're meant to live.

Burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that results from prolonged exposure to stress. It often involves feeling overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and a sense of reduced accomplishment or effectiveness.

To feel burned out = the inner certainty that this life, even though it might be of your own creation, can't be the one you're meant to live.

Focussing on Belonging is to design a life you don't need to recover from.

It's the best burnout prevention strategy you can invest in.

Design is the art of making existing things better.

Design is strategic & meaningful improvement. It is vision-engineering for the long-term, asking: What do we want instead?

And design is also concrete action planning & taking decisions over the next steps needed asking: How will we get it done?
