Welcome to the Life Design Catalyst Web Page

This is THE place to be if you want to infuse values, purpose, dreams, and vision as a foundation for education!  We empower people (primarily students) to become self-experts, to build the skills and knowledge for self-directed learning.

Our work as Life Design Catalysts can be summed up from an excerpt from the book, “One: How many people does it take to make a difference?” by Dan Zadra and Kobi Yamada (2009). The question they asked on the first page was: “What does a great life look like?” The answer?

“A great life includes something worth living for, maybe even worth dying for. A portion of a great life would be devoted to something bigger, greater, grander than yourself. Something that inspires you, energizes you, pulls you forward. Something that responds to your unique talent or touch and, ultimately, makes a difference in the world around you. A great life would naturally bring more meaning, purpose, love, laughter, wonder, and adventure to your days. And, at the end of your journey you would look back on a life of significance, rather than regret – knowing in your heart that you left the world better than you found it. Knowing that you made a difference in the lives of others. Knowing that you got something wonderful out of it, and you gave something wonderful back. A great life, of course, is not something we experience, it’s something we create.”

And that sums up best our role in this world as Life Design Catalysts.
