Love checklists? So do I!
If you need ideas to help you start doing spectacularly little--and yet kind--actions that make a difference, this is for you.
Alice and Wonderland’s infamous Cheshire Cat once wisely declared, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” Unfortunately, this is the way many of us live our lives. Going down any, or all roads open to us, leading us to who knows what end.
Here, at Average Advocate, we highly value living intentionally. Why? We believe we can be fully alive and make a difference in the world.
Yes. Both. At the same time. Without burning out. (*SHOCKER*)
So how does one begin to live intentionally? There is no right method, but the system I use is dubbed Life Mapping.
In a nutshell, I was doing all the good things to change the world and burned-out, unintentionally hurting those around me and myself in the process. (Average Advocate has been here through all of this, like a patient friend)
I moved across across the country, took a year-off ministry, business, and all non-profit and do-gooder work to heal, re-calibrate my people-pleasing ways, and figure out how to do things differently.
And that is when I began Life Mapping. You can read more about my story here, but now, on to you.
Life Mapping is a form of life coaching (also known as life planning, but that term sounds too intimidating for my wanderlust soul). Life Mapping guides individuals through a series of exercises that rapidly help them chart the path they need to be on to get to where they want to go–even if they have no clue where that is when they start!
Think: Compass. Map. GPS.
If you can figure out your destination point, you can re-calibrate over and over again to get there–even if you make 20,000,000 wrong turns. And, SURPRISE! The destination point isn’t what you do, but rather, what type of person you’ll be.
(Ya, let that sink in for a moment. Is it actually possible to structure your life around characteristic instead of achievements? I’ll answer that one for you: Yep.)
Life Mapping is a comprehensive eight-step system:
Here are some expectations you should have for Life Mapping:
By now you should know that Average Advocate exists to empower ordinary people to change the world. But most of us get stuck before we get started, or we start strong and then fade fast. (After all, global problems just keep comin’ and life is already so overwhelming).
Solution? We flip the script. We start being who we are designed to be first. Uncovering vision, implementing order, and living who we are out behind closed-doors (in our hearts and homes) changes us. The result? We begin meaningfully making a difference in the world.
Life Mapping is for you if you…

You don’t need me or any other coach to begin Life Mapping! Just download the workbook and start! I hope everyone does this, with a coach or without!
(Please note: the free downloadable workbook on Average Advocate isn’t the most updated version, nor does it include the document template you can dump your finished Life Map in > Join a Life Mapping coaching group with Average Advocate for the updated version!)
People have more success Life Mapping with accountability and personal feedback. The workbook is just information. But it is Information + Imitation + Implementation = Innovation. Personal access to and coaching from someone who does Life Mapping greatly increases your odds of finishing your initial Life Map and using the system well so that it changes your life.
I really believe in this, which is why I am try to give this to you at the lowest value I can afford. But I’ve also discovered that those who are the most likely to finish their Life Map are those who’ve made an investment because they value it.
Right now, Average Advocate Coaching has two packages to help you begin Life Mapping over a period of six sessions: One-On-One Coaching and Virtual Life Mapping Coaching Groups.
***Fall 2019 is the first time virtual groups are being offered, and we are starting with an introductory price! Take advantage of it!***
