How to design your life

Life Design

January 10, 2023

So, what exactly does designing your life mean?

When people hear me say the word design, they think I’m referring to some exercise in tearing everything down to build it back up again. But I don’t meant that at all.

Designing your life is simply an exercise in making those subtle and sometimes not so subtle changes in your life to become a better you.  When you make change a creative pursuit it opens you up to more possibility.

To boil it down, if we look at the spiritual laws, life is about forward motion. Our goal is to always increase the way we experience life. To do this, we are constantly striving to improve our lives whenever possible and this improvement always involves change.

So, what kind of change are we talking about?

Well, it can mean rethinking the way you want to show up for your loved ones, spouse, family or partner. Do you want to spend more time with your kids or be more available to you parents as they get older? It may be being a more patient parent or sibling.

Maybe its rethinking what you do for a living. Does your career feel fun or soul crushing? If so, make a move. You could look at changing it all together or simply showing up differently for clients or your team. All things to think about.

It can be a shift in how you give back to the world. Are there activities or causes you want to be more actively involved in? Something you hold dear to your heart that you want to support more.

Whether it’s in work, relationship or life in general – how can you step it up a notch and show up in a bigger, bolder way. That’s all it is. Think of your life as a work in progress.

To get started simply set an intention to view your life through a more creative lens. Making those areas of your life that may seem less colorful have greater dimension, satisfaction and impact.

Because after all, that’s why you’re here. To make this time on earth count and to leave a mark that’s a reflection of who you are and what you were meant to leave behind.
