ADD To the Quality of Your Life!

All the goal-setting programs in the world are not going to help you get what you want unless you first get clarity about how you got to where you are currently in life. Knowing that affects everything else going forward.

Life is not about setting goals. Life is about Living OUT the best of who you are, by experiencing joy, abundance, and peace of mind.


What you might not realize is that your problems and challenges could be holding you back from succeeding at your best intentions. When I first work with a new client I start with the first step of the ADD Method to Assess your current “situation” in life to know where you stand. Next we consider your physical and emotional environments to get rid of what’s not serving you, and to increase your energy and focus. 

“I wanted to thank you for the content of  yesterday’s webinar. You struck me as kind, real, and honest. I heartily agree with what you said about getting clarity and doing purging (of both stuff and people!) before trying to go all-out on goals. This is an unsexy message that I think lots of coaches gloss over or avoid entirely, so thanks for being real about it.” – Heather K.


Once you’ve got clear on what was holding your back, and purged your physical and emotional environments, we spend time on what you want to accomplish, your mission or calling in life – your 3-year Dream.

We’re not setting goals at this point. This is your time to dream freely, to envision a time in your future-present when you have experienced the feelings of success and accomplishment. It’s a powerful experience to prepare you for the remaining steps of the ADD Method.

“Darren’s life experiences have truly made him an example of overcoming hard situations and made him an exceptionally unique coach, as he can relate to individuals on so many levels.” – Nada Elbard


Once we have dealt with past challenges and blocks, and then created your 3-year dream and mission to pull you forward we start on the Design Phase of the ADD Method.

This is where you evaluate what’s most important to you and define your core values. From there we work on establishing your goals, and making sure both your values and goals are in complete alignment, which will increase your motivation to take consistent and persistent action. 

Finally we create a structure, systems, and an optimal schedule that supports your goals and dreams, to make getting what you want a joyful and efficient process. From that point everything is implementing what you’ve learned and committing to living OUT the best of who you are.

“Whenever I’m discouraged by a bad week you’d mention where I’ve come from and how much progress I’ve already made. You have a confidence that I’ll succeed and that confidence is infectious. I’d see how you’d adapt to find ways to explain new habits, and to get into my head to figure out what was holding me back.” – Brent Knowles

Slow Down to Create Lasting Results

To get the best results, and lasting improvement, you will need to invest your time and energy – not just by showing up for our coaching sessions – but for the work you will need to do between sessions. Personal evolution is a process that takes time and there is no “due date”!

The ADD Coaching Methodology is a “self-management” process for life. Once you’ve experienced it, you can repeat any of the steps when you find yourself blocked, if you’re struggling with a problem, or feeling unmotivated.

This is the subtle but powerful difference of my coaching approach and why it’s so effective at helping my clients get what they need to live an impactful, efficient, and happier life.
