What Makes Work by Design School Different?

When it comes to work, many of us are so overwhelmed by WHAT we have to do that we don’t prioritize learning HOW to do it well.

This mistake can cost us decades of our careers, and the success and fortune that lie just around the corner.

Work by Design School helps you change the way they work to maximize your life.

As an early employee at Twitter, I found myself in the heart of Silicon Valley at a company known as an innovative leader in the world of work.

My colleagues were some of the brightest people around. Opportunities of a lifetime landed on our desks, weekly. The burrito bar was to-die-for.

And yet.

Even there, work was broken.

Overwork and inefficiency reigned. Stressed-out, constantly connected employees crowded the cafeterias. On most days, purpose was an afterthought.

Twitter wasn’t alone. In my work in social innovation I had a golden ticket to learn from the best. I worked with organizations big and small. I spent my days alongside celebrities, political leaders, scions of the business world, and even the Pope.

I saw phenomenal successes and even more spectacular failures. I saw happy employees and entrepreneurs and miserable ones. Again and again, there was one thing that seemed to determine the difference between the people who were #winning at work and everyone else.

And that one thing lay at the heart of it all.

The work people did would differ. Some would write spreadsheets and some would give keynotes. Some would lead in government and some would lead in the boardroom.

The work they did didn’t matter. But the way they worked made all the difference.

We aren’t born knowing how to work.

And so, at some point in our busy careers we wake up and wonder what happened. How did we get so overworked and overwhelmed? How did we get to a place where we know we may not be reaching our fullest potential, but we don’t know how to grasp the best opportunities in front of us? How did we get so off track?

We want the same thing: To work less, and earn more.

But we have no idea where to start, and too much work on our plates to think about making such a journey.

I believed there was a better way.

And so I became a student of work. I talked to hundreds of individuals and experts about how they worked. I read dozens of books. I spent more hours of my life in Internet rabbit holes than I’d like to admit. And I became a human guinea pig for experimentation. Some things worked marvelously. Some were nightmarish failures.

But my work hacking paid off.

Within five years, I had cut my work hours in half, quadrupled my income, and found more meaning that I had imagined possible.

Along the way I had my first big revelation: We never learn how to work.

We learn to do algebra and to read French and to play scales on the piano. We learn to juggle a soccer ball and write in cursive and cook a chicken. But we never learn how to work. No university walks us through the concepts of productivity, energy management, earning potential, and doing our best work. No degree teaches us to use intention to shine in our work and transform our lives.

We spend half our lives doing this one thing, and yet no one ever teaches us how

And then I had my second big revelation: Work may be broken, but there is a way to fix it.

I knew that what had worked for me could work for others as well. And so I began to share what I had learned.

When my sixth book on productivity was published debuting the principles of my Do Less Method I expected positive responses. And yet what I got blew me away.

Again and again, readers asked for more. Much more.

How can I dive deeper into these concepts to maximize my income?

Can I hire you to cut my work hours?

To master this system, I need more. Where can I find it?

Can I download your brain?

How can I learn how to work, for good?

“I will change the way you work.”

Claire Diaz-Ortiz

I won’t sugarcoat the transformation that is involved in changing the way you work. You’re going to dive into the deep end, and it’s not always going to be pretty. I’m going to ask you to throw out all your bad habits, start with a clean slate, and embrace a new way to work. But every minute of time you invest in learning the Work by Design System will be returned to you tenfold.

I will change the way you work.

What is it worth to you to maximize your work, instead of maintaining the status quo? A lot, I’m betting. If you’ve read this far you’ve probably bumped up against your own fair share of stress, underperformance, or even overwhelm in the journey. This isn’t the way you were meant to work.

What opportunities are you missing out on? What earnings are you leaving on the table by not making a change, once and for all?

What is it worth to you to master your priorities, tame your time, and increase your impact?

ON THE FENCE?

I know how it is. Making a change requires doing something different than what you’ve done in the past. If what you have been doing until now has been working for you, keep at it. But if you’ve read this far, I’m betting that’s not you. You likely know that you’re not maximizing your potential when it comes to productivity and profit. And you know that not making a change will likely lead to more of the same.

If you want a different outcome, you’ve got to do something different to make it happen.

Work by Design School just might be the change you’ve been waiting for. Make the choice. Embrace a better you.

#Hi!

I’m Claire Diaz-Ortiz.
Or, @claire for short.

I am an author, speaker, and entrepreneur who has been named one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company. I was an early employee at Twitter, and have been called everything from “The Woman Who Got the Pope on Twitter” (Wired) and “Twitter’s Pontiff Recruitment Chief” (The Washington Post) to a “Force for Good“ (Forbes) and “One of the Most Generous People in Social Media” (Fast Company).

I am the author of seven books, and am a frequent international keynote speaker. I write a popular business blog at ClaireDiazOrtiz.com and serve as a LinkedIn Influencer. I hold an MBA and other degrees from Stanford and Oxford Universities and am the co-founder of Hope Runs, a non-profit organization in Kenya.

I’ve appeared widely in most major television and print news sources, including places like CNN, BBC, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Good Morning America, and The Today Show.

There is nothing I am more passionate about than working less and living more, and my life story is a testament to that. I sleep ten hours a night, read 200 books a year, travel more than 100,000 miles every year, and never miss an episode of The Bachelor (#truth).

I can change the way you work. Will you let me?
