Welcome to Life Design.

Welcome to Syntegrate Life Design, a step-by-step discovery program that will help you to define and design your Best Life.
Once your Life Design is formulated you will be able to apply your learnings to your work and career and to making the adjustments needed to build a thriving personal and family life, true to who you really are, and in tune with your Unique Life Fingerprint.

Life Design has been developed using strategic planning and business problem solving approaches known as the Syntegrate method. You will apply this approach over three phases and through the 10 steps in the Life Design portal. This discovery methodology will help you develop the most important plan you will ever create, your own Life Plan.

Synthesis: is to first look at all the information from your life to date and create a Synthesis of this into patterns of recurring behaviours, attitudes, values, strengths, life highs and life lows.

Synergy: is about finding patterns in who you are and in life themes on what drives, inspires and energises you, and what you attach greatest priority and importance to.

Integration: is when it all comes together into a final plan for you. What aspects of your life are you happy with and which aspects would you like to optimise and develop? The Integration plans start with simple, easy-to-do next steps, but also for many people this will define future goal setting, career shifts and retirement planning.

To get an overview of the Life Design approach, watch the introductory video by clicking on the link below. All the digital tools you need for Life Design are contained in the portal, however I suggest you have a pen and a life design notebook handy to keep any accompanying notes all in one place . The Life Design Portal offers the best user experience on a computer rather than a mobile device, so please complete the steps on your desktop or laptop. This will also make it easier for you to download the printable PDFs of your work after each exercise. I recommend that you save your printable PDFs at the completion of each tool into a Life Design folder on your computer so that you can easily refer to them as you progress through the 10 Steps of Life Design.

Start the program by setting your goals

Life Design works best when you have goals in mind. Please capture the top three goals you would like to work on as you Design your Life. They should be those goals that are top of mind to you. The goals you set will be personal to you. We have seen that others who have completed the program have chosen goals like defining their career, integrating their work and personal life, building confidence and clarity on who they are and what they are good at and in the area of personal growth and development.

Your goals may evolve as you go through your life design journey. You can return to this Life Design home page at any time to hone and develop and hone your goals.

Capture Your Sparks and Jolts Here

Sparks are lightbulb moments you get along the way, and Jolts are wake-up calls where you realise something big in your life needs major attention. As you work through the Life Design program, thoughts will spring to mind triggered by each of the exercises. Capture them here when they are ‘fresh’ thoughts. You can revisit them at the end of the program to ensure your action plan addresses them. Hit the submit button to save them.
