<h1>Learn To Gain A Stronger Awareness For Life And Achieve More On A Daily Process With The Power Of Focus.</h1><br /><br /><h2>THE POWER OF FOCUS</h2><br /><h3>How To Beat Procrastination And Achieve More.</h3><br /><br /><p>We are often pushed like the wind from one task to the next and regularly lose our ways in life. This can be all change with simple adjusts and a change in habits.</p><br /><p>Learn to create daily goals</p><br /><ul><br /><li>How to achieve more.</li><br /><li>Find an accountability partner and have public accountability.</li><br /><li>Change your day and become a task master.</li><br /><li>Protect your time.</li><br /></ul><br /><br /><h3>How To Create Our Daily Goals</h3><br /><p>You’re busy. I’m busy. Everyone’s busy. Yet despite this bustle, we regularly don’t feel especially productive from day to day. Entire weeks can flash by in a blur of meaningless emails, conferences, and admin tasks while the “massive stuff” is going untended. As the nineteenth-century philosopher Henry David Thoreau wrote, “It isn't enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?”<br />If we want to take back control of our workday schedules and priorities, the simplest way to do it is by way of relentlessly wondering how we’re spending our time. However, what questions ought we to ask? I reached out to a handful of normal 99U individuals and the 99U convention audio system to get their insights on daily energy and assignment control. Here’s what they said:<br />From Leo Babauta of Zen behavior:<br />What are you doing in this moment?<br />The simple act of becoming more aware of what you’re interested in helps you to recognize what you need it to be – growing something extraordinary. Too often, we get distracted or get caught in unimportant tasks – coming back to the moment will often assist.<br />From Tony Schwartz of the strength project:<br />Are you scheduling time each day to have awareness without interruption?<br />Set aside at the least one period throughout the day – no more than 90 minutes at a time (and as close to that as feasible) – to have awareness without interruption. Time, in other words, to do something essential, however, no longer urgent – to put something in writing, replicate, strategize, consider, paint etc., on a long-term project.<br /><br />The key here is control of attention. We’re so distracted, and we’re feeding that feeling on every occasion we switch between responsibilities. We need to (re)educate our attention. Focused interest can serve obligations – that’s the left hemisphere at work, doing rational, deductive, logical, step-by using-step questioning.<br />The other sort of attention, which serves creativity, is where the right hemisphere is dominant. That calls for deeply quieting the thoughts. It was Betty Edwards (drawing on the proper aspect of the mind) who located that one powerful manner to prompt a shift from left to the right hemisphere is to copy an upside-down line drawing. Or to genuinely count to a certain number.<br />But there are lots of approaches to activate the shift: take a walk in nature, go for a run, and concentrate on a classical tune… even take a bath. It’s repetition that causes the shift. The more we teach any muscle – which includes the right hemisphere – the more potent and more lively it becomes.<br /></p><br /><p>This all can be achieved here with the change of habit you can very easily tap into your power of great focus.</p><br /><b>Download Now!</b><br /><br />

<b>Come Alongside Teens and Adults and Share Life Together</b><br /><br /><b>Children affected by disability don’t stay children forever.</b> In the same way that parents must adjust their parenting strategies, our churches must adapt ministry strategies to appropriate age levels and expectations in order to serve people affected by disability well. Eventually, ministry programs will naturally extend beyond our church gatherings and grow into true friendships. As we discuss the logistics of ministry to teens and adults, our attitudes should be more about coming alongside others and doing life together than providing ministry for others. It is our desire to see churches become irresistible—places of authentic community that compel people of all ages affected by disability to fully belong.

Leadership is best defined as influence. An Irresistible Church is an authentic community built on the hope of Christ that compels people affected by disability to fully belong. Irresistible leadership is not merely about leading individuals affected by disability. Rather, it is about creating space for everybody who is called into leadership to come, grow, and express their gifts and talents. Healthy leadership does not happen to people affected by disability nor does it only happen for them. It should happen with them. Learn the four steps to a healthy mentoring relationship and be used by God to release people into the spheres of leadership where he has called them.

There are a lot of children (and adults) who struggle with reading. Some are helped by their schools, some are not.<br /><br />In this short booklet, Pamela Brookes shares some of the basic information she wishes she’d had when she was first trying to figure out how to help her child learn to read. <br /><br />Teaching A Struggling Reader is filled with links to informational and product resources for parents or teachers. It is geared to people who want to educate themselves in the methods that are effective in teaching those with a dyslexic learning style. It also contains photos demonstrating basic techniques like “Tapping” (using one’s fingers to aid in sounding out words) and “Making your bed” to differentiate between “b” and “d.”<br /><br />The focus of this book is the reading process. However, since many dyslexic readers also struggle with math, there is a brief description of how the dyslexic brain comes to understand math. There is also a link to a blog by Dr. Meg Burke of Dyslexia Pros. She is a dyslexic learner with a PhD in math education who is dedicated to helping her students attain fluency in math. <br /><br />This is a booklet that can be read in one sitting. However, there are ample links to provide an even greater experience.

Do you want your church to be a place of belonging? Do you want your church to be Irresistible?<br /><br />An Irresistible Church is an authentic community built on the hope of Christ that compels people affected by disability to fully belong. Doing Life Together will equip your church to serve families affected by disability, not only on Sunday mornings, but as part of an true community. <br /><br />Many churches have very active Disability Ministries.  However, most of the ministry takes place on Sunday mornings.   But what happens to families affected by disability between noon on Sunday and 9:00 AM the next Sunday?   That period of time is when the “messiness” of life with a disability takes place.   This booklet offers practical tools for churches and individuals to help meet practical needs,  build community and remove some of the isolations that families affected by disability experience.<br /> <br />This booklet will also help you to better understand the unique ways disability affects each member of the family; parents, spouses, siblings and grandparents.  Disability is definitely all about doing life together!

An Irresistible Church is an authentic community built on the hope of Christ that compels people affected by disability to fully belong. Do you long to be part of a church community where people of all abilities gather to worship, a church where the sounds of worship include a wheelchair rolling down the aisle, the tap of a cane, and the sound of people with differing intellectual disabilities lifting their voices together in praise and prayer? If so, we pray that Shout for Joy! will help your church have a heart for worship that is accessible to all and give you some practical “how-to” ideas as well. God is at work in his church as more and more churches are becoming irresistible—authentic communities built on the hope of Christ where people affected by disability are compelled to fully belong and encounter God as the community gathers in worship.
