Are You Living a Designed or A Drifted Life?



We are already in the second week of 2022 and perhaps I shouldn’t ask, but 

“How are those New Year Resolutions going?

I don’t believe in New Year resolutions. 

They don’t work. 

They are just a fabulous way to make ourselves feel like crappy, useless failures – usually by the middle of January.  😫

What I do believe in is living a designed life and using a plethora of high performance techniques like goal setting, micro habit stacking, routines and rituals, 25 year frameworks, the focus of five, 90 day mapping and the like to bring my designed and desired wealthy life into reality.

So what is a designed life?

In the Design Your Wealthy Life workshop I ran this past week I explained the difference between a drifted and a designed life and why real sustainable wealth can only ever be achieved by design.

Go here to listen to what a designed life is and how to create your own. 

Plus, you can still give yourself the gift of doing the Design Your Wealthy Life Workshop to ensure 2022 is a year where you are actively designing and creating your reality and not just drifting around like a rudderless ship without a captain at the helm letting life happen to you.

What is a drifted life?

I think the lyrics of the 80’s song “Once in a Lifetime” by Talking Heads sum up a drifted life perfectly. 

And you may find yourself

Living in a shotgun shack

And you may find yourself

In another part of the world

And you may find yourself

Behind the wheel of a large automobile

And you may find yourself in a beautiful house

A drifted life is finding yourself somewhere instead of having taken yourself there.

And you may ask yourself, well

How did I get here?


And you may ask yourself

Am I right? Am I wrong?

And you may say yourself


“My God! What have I done?”


OMG “what have I done with this one precious life I was given?

That is the devastation of a drifted life.

So let me ask you…

What are your criteria for wealthy life success and how would you know you are living your unique wealthy life?  

What are the things that when you have them and experience them will make you go…


“Hell Yeah! This is MY beautiful, wealthy Life.


Everyone measures wealth and success differently.


What matters is that each of us know what our unique wealthy life is about and ensure we are using our time, energy, creativity, money and life to live it.

“If you aren’t creating the life of your dreams, 

then what’s the point of living it at all?” 

Here’s to living life on our terms.


Big love
