When parents ask me what is the most difficult character trait to develop in children, I always point to task initiation. Task initiation is a technical subset of self-discipline, where as the name implies, we motivate ourselves to take action on an activity (starting our homework) or work towards a goal. Procrastination is incredibly pervasive, but at the same time is one of the top reasons why we struggle in the pursuit of our goals and why parents fight with their children.

The long-form training environment of a seminar is truly ideal for addressing this need and help our students lay the groundwork for long-term success. As with most character concepts it will be taught thru a combination of conceptual discussions, stories, and role play. Here a few key points to the outline.

  1. Identifying your priorities.
  2. Breaking down your goals into actionable items.
  3. Scheduling yourself for success.
  4. Self-talk to get yourself going.

This seminar is incredibly important and valuable for any child who has a hard time getting started, particularly as they transition to a place where we want them to be more independent. If you are interested in helping your child with this concept, we will review it during week 2 AM (July 5th to 9th), and week 7 PM (August 9th to 13th). For this, or any seminar, you can reserve a spot on our website or by completing this form and submitting it either in person or via email.

Hope to see you soon,
