Well Made Lives reveals ways we can adapt our thinking and behaviour to create a better life for ourselves.  The site covers:

Your Most Successful Self  - a new take on what success is, how to define it for yourself and how to 'bring it' when you need to. 

Lighten The Load - a smart process for re-evaluating the stressors in your life and paring down anything that's difficult or unnecessary.

About Well made lives

When I started this blog two years ago, I was keen to help other people do as I had done: adopt a simpler, healthier, more pared down life.

But there was a crucial error in the 'help' I was trying to give.  I was assuming that what worked for me would work for others too. So all I had to do was tell them what I did and they could copy me.

Reading or hearing other people's stories can really inspire us. Bur how often does it lead to action?  Not often. Sometimes it actually leads to inaction.

What's missing? What makes it so hard for anyone else to follow the recipe for success of someone like Beyonce or Elon Musk?  Why can't we just decide to live as simply and well as Marie Kondo [The Magic of Tidying Up]  or  Leo Barbuta [Zen Habits] - and actually do it?

Because we're not them. We  each have to find our own way - to do what WE do best, not what someone else thinks is best, to create our own definitions of simplicity and success. We need to  build well made lives that work for US and the people we love. If there are obstacles in our way, it's up to US to move them! 

So I'm here to help by doing what I do best, finding or creating tools that will help us all to cut through the b/s and build the essential components of our well made lives.
