As a metaphor, the closet can be the place where you’ve hidden away the best parts of who you are.

These best parts of you can be scary. They’re your hidden dreams or desires, from deep within your personal history — layered with both self and the external judgment of others. Your dreams might feel too heavy to drag out of the closet.

What we’re most afraid of doing is what make us grow and evolve.

It can be unnerving to lean way out of our comfort zone. Comfort is safe, but it’s not expanding; it’s not where personal growth happens, and it’s not where we can have a positive impact in the world.

It can be challenging to find the spark if it’s been locked away too long.

How do you feed that ember to create light and illuminate what’s been hidden away and dormant for so long?

The ADD Method is based on 8 steps:

  1. Assess your life and foundations to know where you stand.
  2. Purge the physical and emotional clutter to make space.
  3. Reinforce the foundations of your life to support your dream.
  4. Dream yourself into the future present of who you already are.
  5. Evaluate what’s most important to live out the best of who you are.
  6. Live by Design with structures that supports your dream.
  7. Refine your goals and adjust your values to match.
  8. Review the process and your commitments.

Imagine that you are living your passion every day.

You know what drives and excites you. It’s so obvious that other people know it too. You are internally motivated to do the work to get what you want, because you are in alignment with what you most value. You do creative, exciting work that is congruent with what’s most meaningful to you.

Consider what you are procrastinating about

What have you been saying or telling yourself that you want to do, but you’re not doing? Ask yourself this question, “What about this thing is causing me to procrastinate?”

Think about your life, right now…

The ADD Coaching Methodology will help you achieve a level of clarity about your life that you may never have experienced. Instead of being pulled in multiple directions, you will have an internal compass that guides you due north with every decision that is congruent with your values and goals.
