Mindset, Principles, and Tools to Live a Life By Design

What does it mean to lead a life by design? Founded on lessons learned from my father working on our family’s childhood farm in Minnesota and refined by diverse connections and experiences throughout my life, my building block principles include clarity of vision, certainty of intent, and the power of values.

The belief that each of us can achieve greatness is central to my methodology, positing that greatness is a choice rather than an endowment of fate. We must choose greatness. People don’t hand us greatness. We decide to be great and then discipline ourselves to be great. It’s about choice and discipline.

With each small choice along the path of my life serving my aspirations, I’ve outlined my practice of self-discipline and personal greatness in my new book, The Leader Within Us. This book has a transformative power and should inspire us all to drop what we’re doing and re-examine the choices we make in our own lives.

No matter your starting conditions, this actionable blueprint for becoming the person and leader you want to be is immediately relevant, and to take control of your life before it’s too late. How many chances do we get? How many days do we have left to make that difference? If we want to run that race, build that company, save our marriages and our families, or keep ourselves from one day lamenting, “I wish I’d done more with my life,” now is the time to act.

The Leader Within Us is expansive as work-life integration and philanthropy to as narrow as better time management, professionally and personally, with both working in symbiosis to guide you towards greatness. With the Three Principles of Leadership and Five Principles of Personal Greatness, you are given the architecture and vision you need for life by design. You, too, can create your best life if you are willing to embrace the principles that will follow in this book. You merely have to apply these principles daily for the outcomes you desire.
