Welcome to Lifebook Aptos, California! Here, you’ll experience the Lifebook Program in an intimate group setting, facilitated by Lifebook Leaders Joel F. Wade, Ph.D. and Susan Wade. Using our powerful online course at home and participating in weekly meetings with your Lifebook group, you’ll be guided, step-by-step, to define your very best future and create a detailed plan to accomplish it.
Over a period of 6 fascinating weeks, you’ll explore the 12 Life Categories one by one. Through a mix of self reflection, thought-provoking content, and powerful group discussions, you’ll define exactly what you want in every important area of your life, why you want it and what you need to do to achieve it. You’ll capture all your thoughts, feelings, goals and strategies along the way in our beautiful Lifebook templates.
Week by week, your insights grow, your breakthroughs build upon one another and your Lifebook takes shape. At the end of the 6-week program, you’ll have created the single-most powerful personal development tool you could ever own – your own personal Lifebook. Authored by you and for you, it’s a tangible, crystal-clear representation of the person you want to become and the life you want to live.
Your Lifebook journey doesn’t end the day you finish the program. In fact, it is only the beginning. As a Lifebook Member, you’ll become part of a worldwide community of truly outstanding people, who, like you, are committed to achieving their very best life. And your Lifebook Leader will support you with an extraordinary selection of resources and events to keep you learning, growing and connected on your journey to a higher quality of life.

Aptos' Lifebook Leader Chapter
Joel F. Wade, Ph.D. and Susan Wade
I’ve been studying psychology and personal growth for over three decades now, working as a teacher, Marriage and Family Therapist and Life Coach for nearly that long. I was frankly blown away by the insights and experience from doing Lifebook. I was able to identify and change some really rotten premises that were holding me back. The clarity of purpose and vision – and the positive changes arising from that clarity, and supported by solid strategies for “practicing our virtues until they are habits” - has been transformative.
What has been most important to me is the intensely personal focus of Lifebook. This is not about learning somebody else’s way of living, or taking on somebody else’s values or habits. Lifebook is about finding what is truly personal to you, from the inside out. This is profound while being at the same time practical; as someone with a long history of exploring personal growth work, it is the most effective personal growth program I have experienced.
Lifebook has allowed both me and my wife Sue to clarify what we want to create together, and what we need to do to create it. We have an ongoing focus that can continue to grow and expand throughout our lives, that we can adapt to accommodate new discoveries and challenges, and that we can use to pick ourselves up when we stumble. I feel a deep integrity with this process; I feel blessed to be able to use it myself, and to have the opportunity to share it with others.

What to expect from your Local Lifebook Chapter experience:
The Lifebook Program is a 6-week life-development experience that improves every life it touches. Our process includes everything you need to design your ideal life and the support you need to achieve it.
You’ll be guided by a certified Lifebook Leader in a small group setting as you create the blueprint for your ideal life over 6 fascinating weeks. The local Lifebook Chapter experience combines our home-study program with weekly group coaching sessions, followed by ongoing support.
You will emerge from this experience with your own personal Lifebook. Authored by you, for you, your Lifebook becomes the foundation for living an extraordinary life. And the strong connections you’ve created with other like-minded, inspired members of your local chapter will give you the social support and accountability you need to be successful!
This week you will be trained on Lifebook’s proprietary process, you’ll learn how to get the most out of your experience and meet the other new members of your local chapter.
You will explore 2 categories this week: your Health and Fitness and your Intellectual Life. You’ll create the first draft of your Lifebook Categories at home while watching an interactive video, and then come together at your local chapter for a powerful group discussion.
This is a very special, very emotional week. You’ll complete the last 3 categories that make up the Personal Life section of your Lifebook: your Emotional Life, your Character and your Spiritual Life.
This week you move on to the Relationship section of your Lifebook. You’ll explore your Love Relationship, your Parenting and your Social Life categories.
This week you'll move on to the Business section of your Lifebook, which contains two categories that are deeply connected, but need to be examined separately: your Financial Life and your Career.
This week focuses on one of the most important categories of all – Your Quality of Life. This chapter helps you define the things you want, the experiences you’d like to have, and the environments you want to be surrounded by in your life. Next we move on to Life Vision, which is a deep, guided visualization of the life you truly want to build. In the program entitled Taking Action, we explore best practices for successfully building your ideal life, and set you up for success with the next step of your Lifebook journey.
