Life Design Coaching for Simple, Rich & Lasting Success


Life design is a process of clarifying, envisioning, and acting in support of your deepest dreams and highest aspirations—in life, work, relationships, business, health, fitness…whatever truly matters to you.

It is, as Richard Gregg, wrote, “a deliberate organization of life for a purpose.”

Bruce is an excellent personal coach.

Using his results-creating framework helped me get free of my day job,
start a small, home based consulting business, and
create a life I’d long dreamed of living.
Lachlan Watson, Sidney, AU

Whether your purpose is getting unstuck, changing careers, creating a home business, downsizing to a simpler yet richer life, completing a 100-mile ultramarathon, or organizing your life to support your art, writing or other creative projects, my life/work organizing framework can greatly increase your chances of creating the success you long for—with whatever you have to start with.

And feel free, focused, and happy about where you are and where you’re headed.

I was skeptical at first. But no more! 
Your coaching helped me organize and simplify both my life and my work—and become more successful in both.

“Bruce is one of the most effective coaches I’ve worked with. 
He gets you excited about pursuing things that truly matter, even under adverse conditions —
and shows you how to stay the course until you get there.
His books and personal coaching were extremely helpful.

To-do lists are great. You also need a framework that organizes those actions into results.

Most people do not fail because they lack ideas, skills, motivation—or time, money and resources.

They fail because they lack a frameworkan energizing, guiding structure—in which to arrange their skills, will, and resources into actions that support their deepest dreams and highest aspirations.

Almost all clients report that applying the Life Design framework makes creating results easier and often life-changing.

“It [a 100-mile ultra-marathon] went extremely well — in process and results. It falls in the list of peak experiences for me. … I used the techniques we discussed. They worked so well that now I’m using those techniques in my work and the rest of my life. Thank you!”

Clients say coaching with me is more like working with a running, tennis, or yoga coach
than chatting with a counsellor.

Would Life Design Coaching Work For You? See “Who I Work With.”

In my 60’s, I thought I was over the hill and would never create the things I really wanted. Then I read Bruce’s book Simplicity and Success. I hired him as my coach, and worked on applying his life-design framework to goals and dreams I’d all but given up on. I haven’t created them all, yet, but I’m making good progress.
