“How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and, keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most.”

Stephen Covey

What is The Focus Course?

If you’re new to the Focus Course, you can learn more about it here.

In short, The Focus Course is all about doing your best creative work without sacrificing the balance between your work and personal life.

It’s a 40-day, action-centric class where you 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, and creating meaningful work.

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.

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 easy and fun and culminates in profound change and understanding.
