Life design artifacts roll experiential information into experimental analyses.

“Where are you” survey identifies areas to focus improvements, “good times journal” finds opportunities to narrow in on. “Personal compass” helps identify poor alignments, both to find areas of focus and to navigate options. Life vision mindmap and “Odyssey plans” collect and explore options for change, while plan prototypes go deep on vetting a new direction. Failure log helps further analyze for results and opportunities to feed back into prototyping.rB5
