Design Your Life: A Blueprint for Living Fully

Imagine life as a masterpiece in progress, not a pre-determined script. That's the essence of Design Your Life (DYL), a philosophy that transcends career planning and empowers you to create a vibrant, fulfilling existence. Here's why DYL matters and how it can unlock your full potential.

As a DYL Certified Coach, I get to use tools and a time-tested process from the creators of the Stanford Design School’s Bill Burnett and Dave Evans.  After completing this workshop earlier this year, I’ve been diving deep into this work with myself and my clients.  I’ve always been fortunate to find love + value in the work I’ve done over my career.  Working in Higher Education, having my own business, teaching and overseeing

Leadership Development at a non-profit that literally saves lives. 

Yes - I get to BE in environments where work matters. I create meaning + purpose.  Yet, I realize there IS more to me than just work.  And there’s more for all of us to grow and create in our day-to-day lives.  

Not everyone has this opportunity.  This is where DYL comes in. (Watch the DYL 3-minute intro video here.) 

Unleashing Your Inner Creator

DYL breaks free from the notion of life happening "to" you. It positions you as the architect, empowering you to craft a life that reflects your values, passions, and aspirations. It's about embracing the journey, embracing the unexpected twists and turns, and using them as opportunities for growth.

Breaking Through the Blocks

Fear, societal expectations, and self-doubt can act as roadblocks on our path to a fulfilling life. DYL encourages self-reflection to identify these blocks. Through exercises and coaching, you can deconstruct limiting beliefs and discover the possibilities that lie dormant within you.

Three Questions to Spark Your DYL Journey

  1. What Lights You Up? Make a list of activities that bring you joy and a sense of fulfillment. What are your core values?

  2. What Makes You Unique? Identify your strengths, talents, and experiences. What do you bring to the world?

  3. Who Inspires You? Identify people who embody the life you envision. What can you learn from their journeys?

DYL is a continuous process, a dance between dreaming, acting, and refining. By delving deeper into these questions, you embark on a lifelong adventure of self-discovery and purposeful living. As a DYL certified coach, I can be the guide by your side - exploring and plotting the best next steps to take for YOU.
