Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.

It's Not Rocket Science
These workbooks are intended to help you better understand your current situation. They provide a little information and a few questions to get you started on any particular topic. They are informational as well as a workbook for notes or journaling.
Contemplation and journaling are important steps to understanding your situation. Through journaling or contemplation, you can gain a broader understanding of the issues and then begin to develop a game plan for implementing change. After you download them, you can either print them out and create a workbook or you can cut and paste them into a word program like Word. You can also simply answer them in your own journal and transfer the questions by hand or not. The bottom line is to do them any way you like. There is no particular order either. Do whichever one gets your attention first.
For those of you who are not journalers, you can simply contemplate each question while out for a walk or quietly with your morning coffee. There is something important about writing things down so even if you don't want to journal in the traditional way, write down bullet points if you like or use art to represent issues or feelings. Writing poetry or stories is also great. The idea is to get it out of your mind and onto paper.
If you have trouble downloading the workbooks, email me and I will send them to you directly.
