The Awareness Building Class has been strategically designed to go side-by-side with The Focus Course.
All 5 of the Class modules fit in line with the key themes of The Focus Course, such as clarity, action, integrity, productivity, and meaning.
Listening to the Awareness Building Class and going through its workbook will complement the work you do in The Focus Course by giving you an additional context and real-life examples from Shawn and Mike related to the content and the assignments found within the Focus Course.
The Awareness Building Class launches on October 20 and will cost $79. But because it was created to intentionally go hand-in-hand with The Focus Course, we’re giving it away for the first week.
The Awareness Building Class includes:
- 5 Audio sessions (each between 30–45 minutes) on the topics of Clarity, Confidence, Integrity, Self-Awareness, and Harmony.
- A PDF workbook for each session with highlights, key takeaways, and action items.
- Professionally edited transcriptions of all the audio.
- Clarity: What it is, how it relates to your work, your personal life, your hobbies, your time, your finances, and more. We share why clarity is important, give some examples of what it looks like when you don’t have clarity, and what you can do about it.
- Confidence: How it relates to productivity, why it's critical for doing your best work, how a lack of confidence is a form of Resistance, and more.
- Integrity: A personal favorite, for this session we discuss Integrity's vital role related to motivation and procrastination. We also give practical ideas for how to rebuild your personal integrity and increase motivation.
- Self-Awareness: Self-Awareness is about understanding our Vision, Values, Most important relationships, Priorities, Goals (the why behind them), our Capacity, and our Default behaviors. In this session we talk about of these things and more — not least of which includes a crash course on getting a vision for your life.
- Harmony: In this session we seek to re-define the idea of "work/life balance" by discussing the difference between harmony and balance. We focus on bringing all the areas of our life together into something where the sum is greater than the individual parts.
