Class begins June 4, 2012
This class is offered once in 2012.
We are human, and as such, everything that comprises our lives takes on massive importance to us. We want to have it all done, and done right…whether cleaning the house, working at our professional careers, homeschooling our children, having our family and friend quality time…all of it. We need it done, and done right. And we know we are the only people on the planet capable of making that happen.

Unfortunately, we are human. That means often, in order to meet our goals in one aspect of our lives, we neglect another. We work harder, but get no further ahead. So we become frustrated with ourselves, perhaps angry with our incompetence. And then the cycle begins…working harder and harder, sacrificing more and more in order to do so, and often leading to depression and unbearable guilt.
Brook Noel wisely discovered that a happy life is not about perfection. It is about balance. And in order to be balanced, we need to look at the demands we place upon ourselves. We can have it all…just not all at the same time. We can learn to live with that…
In this course you will:
- Learn to distinguish between the ‘necessary’ and the ‘obsessive’ in self-expectation
- Investigate various aspects of our lives and the subsequent ‘demand-load’
- Develop awareness of our tolerances and our definition of ‘reality’
- Write a livable, doable Reality Routine for our lives that provides the balance necessary for contentment
Week One – In our first week together, we will take an in-depth look at our homes and every aspect of our lives, inventorying the tasks and demands of each area and our tolerances within them. Then, we will take a Reality Check, explore those routines necessary for satisfaction, and write our reality routines.
Week Two – In our second week, we will continue to ‘work the plan’ as we refine it to add frequencies, timelines, and anchors. At then end of the week, we will evaluate and reassess the routine to pare down for maximum efficiency while maintaining satisfaction.

How Do These Classes Work? Our classes feature a very easy to navigate portal you will login at to access your course. You do not need to be a tech-guru to take our classes. Our classes do not require you to be present at a specific time of day. We use downloadable lessons, message boards, and an online event room to allow you to work through each lesson whenever it fits into your day. The weekend before class begins you will be sent your system user ID and password to login to our community support and learning system.
On the class portal page you will be able to:
- Share on our class message boards and receive step-by-step guidance for any questions during your journey.
- Access and print (or save) your lessons.
- Network with other class members through the message board or instant messaging system.
- Access any class links and worksheets. This portal is extremely easy to use, no internet or message board finesse required.
How much time does this class require? There is no mandatory deadline or sharing with the assignments (although sharing is encouraged and half the fun!) therefore you are free to work at your own pace although you will need to download all lessons during the class period. We do leave classes open for 1 month beyond the scheduled end date, to allow you to retrieve any outstanding information and download lessons–although class helpers are not available for Q&A during this time. Class helpers are only available during the actual 2 weeks of the course. Since we run so many classes, we are unable to send lessons manually or to make them available once the class has closed. By completing an action plan and downloading the lessons you can continue to work on your new system at any pace comfortable to you.
