The Biggest Problem With Traditional Goal Setting

Setting goals is obviously incredibly important for progressing in life.

But the trouble is, how do you know you’re setting the right kind of goals? And more importantly, how do you choose goals that align with your happiness?

Extraordinary by Design teaches you the distinction between means goals and end goals and why so many people end up getting stuck later in life wondering how on earth life passed them by, because they started off with the wrong goals.

You will learn about how human beings get conditioned to set up goals based on brules (bullshit rules) of the Culturescape – that tangled web of human beliefs, practices and ideas passed down from generation to generation.

You then learn how to question the brules and design goals that lead to ultimate happiness, fulfilment and happiness. These goals – your end goals — fall into three distinct areas: Experiences, Growth and Contribution.

Within each area you then learn how to dive in deep and create a life that’s balanced in all aspects. Not just wealth, but wealth AND health AND living a mission AND having incredible relationships and more. Discover how the Three Most Important Questions leads you to a live that is Extraordinary.

The 12 Areas of Your Life

When you look at your goals as tools to get the experiences that make you happy, grow rapidly, and contribute to the world — you can then break your life down into 12 distinct areas.

These 12 areas are so interconnected that when one is lacking, it will pull down the others. But when you elevate one, it will elevate your entire life. This is how you become Extraordinary By Design.

The 12 Categories here are inspired by Lifebook – A Transformational Life Development Experience by John Butcher.

Your Experiences

Life is just an adventure in paradise if you let it be. So, pack your bags, book some tickets, and set forth on the journey that is only yours to take.


Peace in your environment reflects the peace within yourself, and when you take actions to beautify what is around you, it will also elevate you.

Your Growth

In order to have beautiful life experiences, who do you have to grow into?

Health and Fitness

Work takes up nearly 70% of most people’s waking hours. So, make sure you spend this time in a career that makes you happy, allows you to grow, and contribute to the world.

Creative Life

Creativity is what allows you to build a bridge over an obstacle and set forth on uncharted territory. Be sure to make time to be creative and your life will be abundant with possibility.
