[WEBINAR REPLAY] Depression and How to Begin to Get Your Priorities Straight


Do you ever feel like you are:

  • Trapped in a daily grind
  • Not living the life you want
  • Everyone’s expectations matter but your own
  • Neglecting your health because you are too busy
  • Wasting your life on things that don’t matter

This webinar can help you.

John Arnold, From The 7 Minute Life, shares his story of depression versus priorities


Those feelings can be oppressive.  In today’s webinar, I dive deeper into a time in my life when my priorities were completely askew.  My time management had gotten so completely off track that I actually entered into depression.  My children did not know me as the happy, healthy parent I wanted to be for them.  Nor was I enjoying my life.

I shared this story in a recent video and within twenty-four hours we had over five hundred views.  I knew immediately I needed to share more specifics about how I got my priorities back on track. In this video, I offer that deep dive training. you will learn about:

  • Clarity – The three pictures you need to be crystal clear on to move forward
  • Cost – How to count the cost of moving forward and the importance of counting the cost of staying where you are
  • Consistent action – How to put in place routines and “micro-actions” that shape your character so you can change your situations.
  • The difference between living reactively to you environment or living proactive driven by your priorities
  • How to stagger deadlines when you are juggling too many priorities and how that can help relieve stress.
  • How to put ‘triggers’ in place to prompt you to stick to what you intended to do
  • Reviewing your progress regularly, so goals and priorities don’t just set on a list as a good intention
  • And much more
