The Plan for This week:

Week Three of the Firegirl Academy is a big, busy one and it's all about YOU. We're going to do a little Marie Kondo on your interior life, poking around seeing what's there, organizing it and getting ready to use it. 

Have your sparkle notebook handy, you're going to use it a bunch this week - writing, writing, writing. 

Remember to go through the videos in order, take your time and reflect on the content. Pause them to do the exercise at hand. Also note the links to all the industry standard personality/strength assessments. Do them too. Don't worry. It's all fun stuff. 

Video #1 - Check in. 17 minutes.
Have you completed your work from the last two weeks? Is your sparkle notebook filling with treasure? How are your habits? Here's a handy checklist.

Video #2 - Putting first things first. 10 minutes. 
Steven Covey shows us on how to create balance in a busy life. Spoiler Alert: It's all about making conscious choices. You are the author of your life - you write the story, so write a good one. 

Video #3 - Q2 Training. 21 minutes.
How to organize your time better so you can put first things first. Committing to this one practice will change your life, so just do it. As Covey says, "to know and not to do is not to know." 

Video #4 - Yellow Pen and Purple Book. 13 minutes.
Your mouth is a powerful instrument - you can speak life or you can speak death. What are you saying about yourself? Is it helping you or hurting you. Here's how to discipline your mouth to speak what God speaks. Two tools. You can buy the purple book here or post this little printable. 

Video #5 - Tasks. 14 Minutes. 
Anexplanation about your work for the rest of the week. The My Purpose Is... exercise, Love Dinner and writing a great bucket list.
