The Desire Map

I know you…

You don’t gripe about what it takes to make things happen. You do the good work. And sometimes that work is terrifying and trying. You know all about the constant racing for success – to deliver the mission, to connect to your clients and the cause, to be a productive part of the team, to lead the people who are counting on you.  The pressure to accomplish and succeed can lead you to high stress levels and habitual, unconscious goal setting; always more, always farther away, never enough.

We have the procedures of achievement upside down. Typically, we start by listing the stuff we want to accomplish, have, get, experience. Most of us concentrate our attention on what and how, not why.  When really, our aspirations are all driven by a desire to feel a certain way.

Cynics would say that choosing to place your focus on feeling good is silly – maybe, even selfish. But I (and thousands of other Desire Mappers around the globe) know better. Because who wants to live a life that doesn’t feel good? How can you connect; how can you help anyone else if you don’t feel good yourself?

THE DESIRE MAP is based on the best seller by Danielle LaPorte


What if we get clear on how we actually want to feel within ourselves, and then we design how to move toward our goals and dreams, with purposeful intention?  When you’re connected to the greater purpose of an intention and there’s pleasure in the process, you can pull off some amazing feats. Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerfully creating thing you can do. You can do good and feel good. The Desire Map helped me learn to make better choices by making decisions based on my core desired feelings.  I’m happy to share my Desire Map story.

I’ve worked with and for nonprofit organizations for thirty years. I’ve consulted and coached for businesses and individuals for twenty. I know what keeps you awake at night. I’ve been there. So if you’ve been searching for a better way to take it all in stride, to move purposely toward feeling energized and motivated every day, I can show you a new perspective with a Desire Map virtual or in-person workshop.  The Desire Map leads us on a journey that makes sense and fills us up.  How do you want to feel?
