“Bruce Elkin does a great job showing that voluntary simplicity doesn’t mean doing without. Rather, simple living is about fine-tuning your life to achieve your most important dreams.”Janet Luhrs Seattle, WA, Author, The Simple Living Guide

LIFE DESIGN —
Deliberate Organization of Life For A Purpose
“Voluntary simplicity means singleness of purpose, sincerity, and honesty within, as well as avoidance of exterior clutter . . . an ordering and guiding of energy and our desires . . . a deliberate organization of life for a purpose.”Richard Gregg, “Voluntary Simplicity”
Bruce Elkin, personal life coach, is a 35-year practitioner of voluntary simplicity.
His Life Design approach to simplifying life, work, relationships, whatever… is a powerful and elegant way to create purposeful, rich and lasting success. Even the life you long for.
And, to do so in harmony with the natural systems on which all of our health, wealth and well-being depend.
Driven by vision, grounded in reality, and focused on results, Elkin’s approach goes beyond mere decluttering or short-term minimalism.
It can help you:
- Clarify what you most want to create in life and work.
- Craft clear, compelling visions of desired results
- Ground vision in an objective assessment of current reality, i.e. where you’re starting from, and whatever you have to work with
- Use the energy—creative tension—that arises out of gap between vision and reality
- Then, step by step, take action to bring your vision into being
- Develop mastery, competence and authentic as you go
- Celebrate and enjoy your success.
In the end, you’ll have created what you truly want, and be clutter free!
