The Urban Monk, Time Management
If you cant focus your mind on exactly where you want your energy to go, you will not be successful. If you cant hold the line, time will fly out of your pocket like giving $20 to a 6 year old in a candy store. People typically set themselves up to fail when they set goal that they have no real intention of completing or finishing. Intention is only half of the equation. Integrity starts with one’s word. When you start breaking little promises, you are more likely to breaking big promises. Your word to yourself is gold. When you can match your word to your action, and follow through, that is when you start to become an effective human being.
“The Way a Person Does One Thing Is the Way They Do Everything.” Looking for internal change through external stimuli is self destructive. You will never be able to change yourself if you put your spare energy into television, computers, and social media. Learn more about taking the 21 day FOCUS course, here!

The Effects Of Divorce On Children
When it comes to divorce and children, there is research that supports that age does matter in children when their parents get divorced. We know around 10-11 years old is a very difficult time for children to process divorce or separation of their own parents. Children internalize comflict and separation, so if a parent is using their child as a pawn in the divorce, the parent is NOT healthy. Divorce is not the hardest part for the child, the conflict is the hardest part. A clinician or therapist is always necessary to a child going through a divorce. Talk to your children, but NEVER bash the other parent in front of the child. That can hurt the child the most. Open the avenue to talk about their feelings with your child. Make your home a safe space.
