Module 2 – Goal-Setting as you have never seen it before
In this module we move from experimenting to proper goal setting and task creation, so that our Grids capture and reflect what we want to do. As we learn goal setting over the next days, we will start by examining the foundations on which our goals rest. Without knowing the foundations for what we want to achieve, goals are like castles built on sand. As soon as we face difficulty, we are more likely to give them up. So this week we will explore these foundations via various exercises always checking back with the Grid of what we are doing across life, work, career and self-care.

The activities this week will examine your balance by getting us to explore what conditions we need to thrive in the first place, how to get into balance with other people by having heart-led conversations, and rediscovering the balance between our conscious and subconscious mind for greater integrity and wise productivity.

Module 4 – Living with more inspiration
In this final module we will practice getting inspired on purpose instead of leaving it to chance. You see, inspiration is something we can Grid too . Over the next 7 days I will be inviting you to look for inspiration and deliberately seek pleasure. Many of the actions this week will create inspiration, and you'll be using it to sprint towards the finish line in order to accomplish the goals you set out to achieve at the beginning of the course.
