If you have teens or tweens in your life (children, students, extended family...) who could use some support getting organized, Eric and I recently sat down with our three youngest children and helped them to learn about Current Projects, Routines, Calendars, and Next Actions. The audio recording explains all the details--and includes some ideas for overcoming personal resistance when you’re working on truly living your mission. Plus we made printable versions of all the tools we used as we taught our children so you don't have to reinvent the wheel!

Question #2: Who needs me to support them with my whole heart today? Come share your thoughts and ideas at https://LearnDoBecome.com/
