Orientation

Course Design

Overall

This course is designed to be completed in 10 lessons over about 14 weeks.

Weekly

Estimated weekly time commitment is 2-3 hours. This includes time to:

Monthly

At the end of each 3-week phase, I’ve allowed a week off from new content, to enable you to focus on skills and technique development.

This will support you, the student, to practice, solidify, and master skills and habits, so you can reach your intended goals.

Daily

Course lessons are broken into 10-ish minute segments.

You can do the reading (or watch the videos, when available) in several 10-15 minute sessions, or you can do them all at one time each week.

Resources

You will need a calendar, a place to write, and a place to store your writing.

Whatever approach you use, make it a part of your life. Have it with you at all times. Use it to:

Practice: Gather Resources

Choose the approach you’ll use to capture your ideas and store them. Will you use Electronic or Paper?

Paper

Which ever you choose, create in your mind an intention to use it regularly.

Practice: Course Scheduling

Take a few minutes, and think about which days of the week and what times during those days you can clear about 5 of these 10-15 minute timeframes, uninterrupted, each week.

After scheduling your times to read or watch lessons, you’ll also want to schedule 2 one-hour blocks, or 1 two-hour block of time where you can think, dream, write, plan, and practice.

Note: the ideal time for these activities is one immediately following an existing activity you already have built reliably in your routine. Examples of good times are: immediately after brushing your teeth, making coffee, getting out of the shower, getting dressed, making your bed, or getting off work. These are ideal times to thoughtfully grab your notebook or computer, do some reading, then schedule or complete the associated assignment.

Practice

  1. Once you’ve identified the best time(s) for you each week, reserve them in your calendar.
    • About an hour for reviewing the lessons and examples, each week.
    • About 2 hours for performing the practices, each week.
  2. Create reminders: write those times and reminders on notes, then place the notes on your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, sink, desk, laptop, computer monitor, lunch bag, car dashboard, or any other place you routinely spend time, as encouraging reminders.

Be creative, inspiring, powerful, and goal-oriented in your notation. Maybe note these times as “I am powerfully getting what I want” or “My lifestyle is getting better every day” or “I have confidence, respect, and connection”, instead of “study” or “read” or “homework”.Inspiring calendar entry with

Relax: Be intentional

With the anticipated weeks off after every 3 lessons, you will complete the course in about 14 weeks.
