    Getting rid of what you don’t need/use thats only distracting focus … THANK YOU

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I know now I need to talk with my child about making a plan. This comes naturally to me, so I just do it, but do not always articulate how I do it. I get frustrated when I start to take over their responsibilities and am always looking for ways to help make them more independent.

    I totally agree about the importance of environment, but am having trouble convincing my husband and daughters about it. They are slowly coming around 🙂

    This session has been so informative.
    I love the idea of making a plan before children start their homework.
    I will most certainly use this strategy.

    Love the idea of building an environment conducive to focus. We so often overlook the value on intentional living and the importance of minimising stuff and activities to enjoy the white space in our lives, homes, in our inboxes and on our calendars. It makes great sense to remove the unnecessary to focus on the necessary.

      Kerry-Ann, So true! The sacred study space is one of Seth’s wonderful ideas!
