“Your purpose in life is to become the best version of yourself and profoundly serve others.”
The Life Design Catalyst Project was created in April 2020 as an online version of the Life Design Catalyst Program in the School of Health and Human Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The LDC Program at UNCG consists of two 1-credit, first-year experience courses: “HHS125: Design Your Life I – What Could I Do With My Life” and “HHS135: Design Your Life II – Redesign a Life You’ll Love,” as well as a 3-credit course, “Purpose-Driven Entrepreneurship,” which has evolved into a “Developing a Side Hustle” course – based on Chris Guillebeau’s book, “Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days.” The LDC Project is an expanded version of these three courses…and a whole lot more!
The Project consists of Modules, Projects, and additional Resources to design your best life. The foundation of the LDC Project are the four Modules (Courses), together known as the Growth Year Bundle:
- Module 1: Sense of Self. Take personal responsibility for your past by focusing on all aspects of your story.
- Module 2: Know Yourself. Understand the characteristics that make you who you are today.
- Module 3: Serve Profoundly. Create statements that guide academic and career plans.
- Module 4: Build a Better You. Develop practices that move you towards becoming the best version of yourself.
In addition to the four Modules, we’ve also included several others awesome resources that Life Design Catalyst Project members can explore:
Project 1: Side Hustle 101. A curriculum that provides the structure to turn an idea into income in 14 days.
LDC Project Zoom Chat Recordings. A collection of recordings from various online Life Design Catalyst meetings.
Odds and Ends. A VAST collection of articles, videos, books, movies, and links for further exploration in designing lives for success.
Life Design Catalyst Community. An online members-only discussion board.
