This is an installation and implementation session on the higher Horizons of Focus?. We will spend time exploring if anything has your attention at each of the horizons, and will end with integrating the horizons at the project and next action levels.

During the session, there are sections where you can create or refine what you have on each of the horizons. The prompt questions for each of the horizons are listed below. These sections were about five minutes each in the live webinar. We have edited out those sections of silence for this recording. Please feel free to stop the recording as you reach those sections, and use the prompt questions below to work on each of your horizons.

The webinar concluded with these two thoughts:

  • Without clear purpose and direction you could easily be busy doing off-course things and wonder why a meaningful life is so elusive
  • Getting the right small things done directly contributes to an authentic and meaningful life
