The Focus Course is all about doing your best creative work without sacrificing anything between your work and personal life.
Learn about the foundational components of a focused life (vision, goals, action plans, lifestyle practices, and time management) as well as the granular, practical, and actionable elements of diligence, focus, work/life balance, gaining traction in your business or side project, and creating meaningful work.
You will build momentum to follow through on your goals and tasks. You'll establish habits that empower you to do meaningful work and build meaningful relationships. You'll get a healthy understanding of what work/life balance actually means, and learn ways to spend your time on the things that serve your life's vision and values.
Topics include time ownership, dealing with overwhelm, getting things done, overcoming analysis paralysis, diligence, focus, life vision, habits, improving your workflows, the tyranny of the urgent, simplifying, thriving in the midst of a distraction-prone work/life environment, doing your best creative work, strengthening your creative imagination, building deep personal integrity, and more. Whew!
This is more than just head knowledge — it's an introduction to experiential knowledge.
Meaningful productivity is the fruit of vision and values. No calendar app or task-management app is going to help you establish the right foundation. If you want to stop spinning your wheels; if you’re tired of ending the day feeling like you didn’t actually get anything done; if you want to create work that matters; if you want to keep your work and personal life in balance… then you have to ask yourself some hard questions. You have to make changes.
“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.” — Herbert Spencer
“The greatest wisdom not applied to action and behavior is meaningless data.” — Peter Drucker
In addition to learning, each day there is a small action item — a simple (though not always easy) assignment. Through each day’s action, you’ll take the wisdom from the course and apply it in a practical way to the action and behavior in your everyday life. Learn by doing. Knowledge alone is not always enough to create lasting change.
This is one thing that sets The Focus Course apart from every other productivity, life hack, or self-help book. By taking the course, you’ll get real clarity about what actually works best for you.
Each module centers around a specific theme. Each day you’ll be given a fun and simple task to complete along with a teaching lesson about the value, relevancy, and practicality of that day’s task. You can read your way through the course, watch the teaching videos, or both.
The days and modules build on themselves. The Focus Course has been meticulously and intentionally designed to lead you along the easiest and most impactful path. It starts out simple and fun and culminates in profound change and understanding.
