58 pages38 minutes


The author starts the introduction by speaking about a student of his named Paddy. This student did not have a daring personality. This is mainly due to the fact that he grew up in military boarding schools before serving in the Marines. After military life, he took a job with a large corporation mainly due to the need of having job security and a set schedule.
The author was teaching at Stanford University when he first met the student. The author was a professor of engineering for 50 years. He comments on the large number of students who plan on starting their own businesses, but instead go to work for companies after graduation. Many students have good ideas, but most of them do not go on to take action on their ideas and taking action is the most important step for success in life.
A course called “the designer in society” was created by the author back in 1969. This course was designed to teach students how to think differently about taking action in their life. Each student is assigned with the task of completing or solving something important in their life. The student will only pass the class if they achieve their own goal.
