The Be-Do-Have Book is very small + very simple.

But don’t let that fool you.

The questions + exercises in this book are highly-potent — and very important.

They’re like little keys for unlocking your most urgent priorities —
the projects, habits + choices that truly matter to your life, and others.


No, it will not.

This book will help you define everything you want to be, do and have — this year.

This book will also help you separate your be-do-haves into categories — like might-be-nice, would-be-great, and totally-non-negotiable.

And best of all, this book will help you answer the one question that changes … everything.
For your business. For your bank account. For your quality of life. For your impact on the world.


Nope, it’s not!

The Be-Do-Have Book costs just $15 — right here:



I certainly hope so!

Working through the book can take as little as 5 minutes, or a whole beautiful weekend.

I recommend working through the exercises in three different locations, to get three (slightly-different) results: like your home, a public space, and a sacred place — or outdoors, in nature. (But more on that, inside the book.)

The whole point of The Be-Do-Have Book is to help you recognize, choose, and make time for what truly matters. So if you feel ‘too busy’, you’re precisely the right person for this little book.

This exercise in exploration created some amazing a-ha moments for me! By the end, I not only knew what I wanted, I knew how to get started getting it. My next steps were laid out right in front of me. The best part: All the answers came from within my mind and heart. The Be-Do-Have Book is a wonderful way to explore your inner desires.

Margaret Lukens has created a powerful yet simple “wee workbook” to help all of us discover, record and prioritize any and all of the Be-Do-Have’s in our lives. Its user-friendly format and easy instructions, together with Margaret’s deep-rooted wisdom and light-hearted wit, make it a must for anyone wanting a simpler, more productive life.

This small book is a LIFE changer!  It’s a book that can literally change the life of anyone you know — sister, neighbor, son, friend, co-worker, and the list goes on.  It has the power to unlock really important and valuable tools and insights for and about our lives that are locked inside each of us if we just take the time to explore and be brutally honest.  This book gives you a template to examine, plan and yes, most definitely change your life.  

— Sue DeRoos, CPO, owner of Organize U

The Be-Do-Have Book is fresh, engaging, and laser-focused. I recommend it for solopreneurs who want to change their life and become more purpose-driven. However, it should probably come with a warning: Acquiring Effective Skills Brings On Immediate Action! 

— Geralin Thomas, CPO-CD, entrepreneur, featured on programs including The Nate Berkus Show and A&E’s Hoarders

This small book adds new usability and depth to the triad “be-do-have,” and it does so with the simplicity, thoughtfulness and usability characteristic of Margaret’s work.  I’ll be keeping this workbook on my desk for some time. 

— The Rev. Mark Lodico, Ph.D.

This deceptively simple little workbook is a powerful first step on the path to being, doing, and having your heart’s desire! Margaret helps you cut through the clutter of competing thoughts and emotions and focus on what you really want.
