About the Author

Bonnie Wan is an author and speaker, as well as partner and head of brand strategy at the world-renowned advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners. As creator of The Life Brief, Bonnie helps people live with greater clarity, creativity, and courage by teaching them how to write creative briefs for their lives. The Life Brief is a practice based on her belief that "you cannot have it all, but you can have all that matters." The Life Brief has evolved from an agency talk into a workbook, workshops, and speaking appearances at Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop, Jane Goodall's Activating Hope Summit, the 3% Conference, SXSW, Bain & Company, Google, Apple,, and more. It has now evolved into the book you see before you.


"The science behind how we generate our reality is clear, and now with The Life Brief we have the ultimate tool to set us on our true path towards success and joy. As much a book as it is a rite of passage for all of us seeking to get down to the essence of who we are, what we desire, and how to get it." --Deepak Chopra, New York Times bestselling author of Metahuman
"We all have stories we tell ourselves about our lives, but what Bonnie Wan so rightly points out is that it is often the questions we avoid that hold the most value. In The Life Brief, she combines the candid self-reflection of the therapy room with the warmth and humor of a hard-won personal journey, then harnesses the executive power of a top industry professional to create a wholly unique guide to living that is both practical and accessible, moving and deeply meaningful. It will transform the lives of everyone who reads it." --Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk To Someone
"Bonnie is an astonishing life force--and The Life Brief is an artful tool that can help you discover you are one too. Bonnie is a brilliant companion on the road to more aliveness. This book is a wonderful invitation. Take it." --Dave Evans #1 New York Times bestselling author of Designing Your Life
"The Life Brief stands up there with The Artist's Way in that it's not self-help--it is a self-unlocking book. Bonnie establishes a process that is interactive, dynamic, and--by sharing her own vulnerable journey--feels like you are not going through it alone. Her book is required reading for anyone who wants to live a life fueled by courage, creativity and radical co-creation with the universe." --Valentine Giraud, Former Board Director, Center for Noetic Sciences
"Bonnie Wan writes as she lives--with heart, wisdom and depth. The Life Brief hooked me like the very best TV drama, where you fall in love with the characters, seeing their struggles and joys laid bare. The tools Bonnie offers are powerful, crafted with her signature depth, intelligence and sharp understanding of human nature. Even as an 'expert' in the field personal development, I found the way Bonnie framed her stories and tools helped me reveal new insight about myself. Bonnie is Oprah - meets Brene Brown - meets Simon Sinek. Her passion for The Life Brief is evident, and her love of being on stage a huge asset to getting this book out there." --Elle Harrison, Author of Wild Courage
"Remember that time when you really took the time to craft (or REcraft) your life, your purpose and chart out your legacy ? No?!? Well now you have the blueprint and guide to do just that. Bonnie's thinking and process cajoles the most stubborn and nurtures the most hesitant but delivers the EXACT process that each of us
need. Read this book and get ready for your attitude and life to be transformed!" --Mick Ebeling
Film Producer and Founder of Not Impossible Labs

"Bonnie Wan shows parents if you want to be there for your children, you need to take care of yourself. A great resource for parents in these difficult times and beyond, it is an inspiring and important way of thinking. I highly recommend The Life Brief as a way to keep your life and the lives of your kids on track." --Esther Wojcicki
Author of How to Raise Successful Children

"In a world awash with competing priorities, unlimited choice and daily time pressures, The Life Brief is the tool that we all desperately need to navigate today's over stimulated world. Thankfully, Bonnie shares her creative strategies to help you bring focus and order to your life with a clear set of priorities on what matters most. Creating your own Life Brief will help you articulate your inner voice and distill your desires to become more true to yourself in a world that often forces us to overlook what we want and value most to propel your life forward." --Eric Ryan, CEO and Founder of Method Home and Olly and Welly Health
"The Life Brief is more than a book. It's an invitation to play, to engage with key questions about our values and beliefs, and to create a unique life play book. I had so much fun reading and engaging with this book!" -Eve Rodsky, New York Times bestselling author
