Stop Wishing for Major Life Changes and Instead, Start Making Them Happen
A straightforward approach to successfully implementing any change into your life
Or read on below to learn more.
Guess what? I’m your fairy fucking godmother.
And I’m here to ask you one question: if you could change anything about your life, what would it be?
Would you make more money?
Finally get that bitchin’ beach bod?
Become the mayor of Cooltown and be everybody’s best friend?
Find that perfect someone?
Or, if you’re like most people, you don’t have a damn clue. You feel torn eight different ways. You dream of one thing on Tuesday and a completely different thing on Thursday.
You’re crippled by existential indecision.
Thankfully, as your Fairy God Fucking Mother, I’ve created a course to help you with that.
The Build a Better Life Course walks you through, step by step, how to figure out what the hell it is you want, then how to actually get it.
I’ve used some version of this system myself for over a decade now. When I started, I was penniless and living on my friend’s couch. Now, I can honestly say I’m living a life that surpasses even my biggest dreams back then.
Is it all because of this system? No, you still gotta get out there and, you know, Do Difficult Shit™. But think of this course as being your guide through that process.

How to Create a Better Life, One Step at a Time
Whenever we want to change our lives, we come up with some pithy goal like: “make more money” or “lose 15 pounds” or “stop masturbating six times a day.”
OK, umm, that’s a start.
The problem is that these are just arbitrary actions. And anyone with even an inkling of motivation can write this kind of stuff in their goals journal.
They might even have the willpower to half-ass their way through a certain number of actions. But this won’t necessarily create any real change.
This type of approach to change sees people burn out, give up, and whine on Facebook. That’s because it’s shortsighted.
Real change comes from a change in your habits.
And a change in habits comes from a long, sustained alteration of small actions.
Let me illustrate it this way: Let’s say you and I are driving along down the road, side by side, in separate vehicles.
We come to a fork in the road, but the two roads in this fork are actually only separated by about one degree.
I take one road, you take the other. Now we’re only traveling away from each other ever so slightly at one degree of separation.
At first, the change is so slight, you can barely tell that we’re technically traveling in different directions.
But over a long enough period of time, if our paths maintain one degree of difference in direction, we’ll wind up far, far away from each other.
Creating lasting change is exactly like this
There are small (but important) course corrections you can make right now that, over time, will put your life in a very different place from where it is today.
Most people focus too much on the destination—lose 50 pounds, get a promotion, make more money, go on a gazillion dates, bang the quarterback/head cheerleader/librarian, etc.—when instead, they should be focusing on the systems they have in place to get them there. Because with the right system, your goals practically take care of themselves.
This course will help you build that system.

What People Are Saying
Praise for the Build a Better Life Course
I thought it was very helpful. Forcing myself to endure the 20-minute thought exercise and the Time/Ratio exercise really illuminated things. The largest takeaway was the idea of forming habits vs goals, which really resonated with me.
This is a great starting point to get your shit together. I think this level of planning strikes a great balance between building a thoughtful framework for the future and taking action towards that future.
This is a short and sweet long-term and short-term vision casting and goal-setting tool. I like that it is step-by-step from broad values down to specific daily actions. Also, nicely records your answers for future reference.
The course provides the opportunity to achieve an outlook that builds upon a person’s current perspective. Mark offers insights that were deep and helpful.
