What's Keeping You from Leading

an Extraordinary Life?

Average performance is the result of your "program" – a subconscious set of rules that automatically drives the actions you take and limits the results you get.


An extraordinary life is the product of consciously writing and mastering your own code.  

Are you ready to master your code...and lead life to your fullest potential?


— Frank Blake, Former Chairman and CEO, The Home Depot

"Master Your Code goes way beyond the typical leadership book by powerfully bringing to life an essential thesis: Great leaders must master themselves before they can effectively lead others. This is a MUST READ for anyone interested in leadership and human potential."

"I can't make a better world unless I can make a better me. Master Your Code is a deeply insightful, yet highly practical guide to that better self. This is a very special book!"

—Bill Anderson, CEO, Roche Pharmaceuticals

"Warning: object in mirror (that's you), may be closer than it not reaching (your) full potential! Those who want to change this outcome need to read this book!"

— Calvin McDonald, CEO, Lululemon

"In this book, Darren draws on wisdom new and old, and offers a practical guide for exploring your own 'code,' taking control of it, and rewriting it for the life you want to lead."

— Drew Houston, CEO, Dropbox


"This book makes a very bold promise -- everyone has the potential to lead an extraordinary life. Master Your Code delivers in a way that few books do.

— Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, President,


— Tim Chen, CEO, NerdWallet

"I couldn't put this book down. Truly authentic, important, and inspiring, Master Your Code is not just another leadership tome -- it's a timely code breaker."

— G. Kelly O'Dea, Chairman Emeritus,

Outward Bound International

"Too many of us plateau in our progress, falling short of what we once hoped for. This book can help your life be the rocket ship it was supposed to be. Read it to operate at your highest point of contribution."

— Greg McKeown, Author, Essentialism

"Master Your Code is the most important thing I've read in years. Some books show you the ceiling and how to break through it. This book shows you that there is no ceiling."


How does anyone get to a point in life where they can unequivocally say they feel fulfilled and fully alive? Why are some of us effective – in our relationships, careers, and lives – and others ineffective despite almost identical circumstances?

Master Your Code provides a simple and powerful answer to these questions. This is your guidebook for consciously writing and mastering your own code. By reading this book you will learn how to:

  • Be the shaper of your life, not a prisoner of your circumstances

  • Take full responsibility for your life and give up the right to complain

  • Honor your word and live a life of integrity

  • Let go of grudges and forgive unconditionally

  • Do what you were born to do in this world

  • Be extraordinary in any part of your life – leading, parenting, relationships, career, and health
