How It Works

The Design Your Life Program is a comprehensive 1-year program for achieving your goals, organizing your life and being your best.

We cover a great deal over the course of the program, but I’ve broken it down into weekly, bite-size activities so it’s simple and manageable, never overwhelming. And we focus on a one area at a time, so you gain momentum and insight.

Here’s How it Works:

Each 4 or 5 weeks you commence a module for one of 12 important life areas - the areas most people target for self-improvement.

Design Your Life Workbooks

12 Modules

The 12 life areas we cover are:

  • Personal Development
  • Health & Fitness
  • Business & Career
  • Fun & Recreation
  • Technology & Social Media
  • Home
  • Personal Presentation
  • Happiness Strategies
  • Money & Finance
  • Relationships
  • Time Management
  • Family


Module 1: Personal Development 1. Personal Development

In this module you’ll create your customized personal development program, including personal growth, courses & training, personal habits and spirituality & mindfulness. In some ways this module is the core of your self- care program.

You’ll be prompted to consider the challenges you want to take on as well as ways to start building your skills and broadening your horizons.

Module 2: Health and Fitness2. Health & Fitness

In this module you’ll move step-by-step through eating and exercising challenges and create a personal plan. There’s a strong focus on emotional and motivation factors – since they’re often what fail us when it comes to our bodies.

You’ll also be prompted to consider broader areas of health, wellbeing and body care, as well as reducing stress, increasing energy, and making time for health.

Module 3: Career and Business3. Business & Career

In this module you’ll assess your career. Activities include making the most of your current position, seeking a promotion, changing career, finding your passion and starting a business.

You’ll be prompted to take a strategic, organized approach to your career aspirations, whatever they may be. This will help you take effective actions and make smart decisions concerning your career and business goals.

Module 4: Fun and Recreation4. Fun & Recreation

This module is all about ‘sharpening your saw’ – refreshing and rejuvenating yourself. You’ll be prompted to consider ways to replenish your energy stores as well as recover the old spark that gets worn out without regular R&R. And it’s about fun!

The exercises in this module will help you gain more energy for work and family, too.

Module 5: Managing Technology5. Technology & Social Media

Forget any fear of technology. In this module you’ll move through very simple but important steps for staying on top of your computer, document files, emails, cell phone and gadgets, as well as blogs and social networking – if they interest you.

You’ll feel a whole lot better about technology after this module.

Module 6: Home6. Home

For some people this module is the most work and the most rewarding. It takes you through your home, room by room, and prompts you to create the home environment you want.

An important part of this module is letting go of stuff you don’t want or need. This can lead to greater clarity in other areas of your life too. Some people even find that losing clutter helps them to lose weight.

Module 7: Personal Presentation7. Personal Presentation

In this module you’ll address your appearance and closet. Far from being superficial, these activities will help you feel good about yourself from the inside out – a natural result of making the most of your assets. For the most part, this module is equally relevant for men and women.

You’ll be prompted to consider your clothes, accessories, purse, briefcase, closet organization and grooming.

Module 8: Happiness Strategies 8. Happiness Strategies

This module is a fundamental part of the program and a source of great personal growth for many people.

Most of the material comes from my happiness research and thesis, where I learned we can do a lot to boost our own happiness level. As someone who wasn’t ‘born happy’ but has learned to be, I use these strategies daily.

You’ll be prompted to look at ways to be happier and release barriers to happiness. Bonus eBook with this module: How To Be Wise & Happy

Module 9: Money and Finance

9. Money & Finance

In this module you’ll work your way through your financial life – from debts, savings and investment, through budgets and record keeping, to insurance and contingencies.

Since most people know what they ‘should’ be doing, you’ll be prompted by these activities to take action, get organized and raise your financial self-esteem.

It’s a module that brings peace of mind to many people, as they finally do the things they’ve been meaning to do for ages.

Module 10: Relationships10. Relationships

In this module you’ll take inventory of your romantic relationship and friendships as well as your own areas for improvement. This is another module that leads many people to big life improvements – not surprising, considering that relationships can make our lives joyous or miserable.

You’ll be prompted to examine the people and relationships in your life, how to improve them and how to boost your own relationship skills.

Module 11: Time Management11. Time Management

In this module you’ll start by seeing whether your time expenditure matches your priorities. It usually doesn’t, but don't worry - that’s a good starting point for change.

You’ll be prompted to streamline work and home tasks, use time better and target time wasters like busywork, distractions, self sabotage and dull recreation.

You’ll also complete an exercising leading you to create your ideal schedule.

Module 12: Family12. Family

We often say family is what matters most, but it can be what we proactively think about least. In this module you’ll look at ways to support your family, deal with issues that concern you, and also celebrate the good family times.

You’ll be prompted to consider your partner, children, parents, siblings and other family members in turn.


Monthly Workbooks

Design Your Life – Your New Life Starts Here

The workbooks are interactive PDF files of around 40 pages each that you download and save to your computer. You can type onscreen and save your file, or print out and hand-write. Choose whatever’s most motivating and enjoyable to you.

Each workbook contains a dozen or so ready-made goals, projects and activities relating to that area – like creating an exercise program under Health & Fitness, reducing debt under Money & Finance, or sorting out your closet under Personal Presentation. You complete the ones relevant to you and the life you want.

Each workbook also contains SMART Goal Planners for you to work on more personal goals. You’ll plan out these goals and make them specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-framed (SMART!).

For some modules there’ll be lots you want to work on. Perhaps you want to start a business, lose weight or declutter your entire home – then you’ll probably spend a great deal of time on the Business & Career, Health & Fitness or Home Modules.

But for most people this will balance out against other modules where you’ll choose to spend less time. In fact the program is designed to give you this sense of big gains interspersed with smaller successes – so you won’t get overwhelmed or burned out.

Weekly lectures

"If you commit 10-20 minutes, most days to following this program, you will radically change your life."

You can go through the workbooks at your own pace, but most people prefer to follow the set schedule – it means you only have to do the assigned amount and you’ll stay on track.

This schedule comes to you via your weekly e-classes. These are short overviews of the projects for the week, plus tips and strategies to guide and motivate you. Sometimes there’s an optional video as well.

But don’t worry - it’s not a hefty set of readings. In fact, the e-classes only take 5-10 minutes to read. This program is all about giving you the tools and structure to take action. Because action is what will make the difference.
