Course Description

Imagine what you could achieve if you could only clear your mind, define your priorities and establish a meaningful vision for your future? 

Life’s constant bombardment of ‘busyness’ often pushes our own priorities completely off the radar. Before we know it, we can end up like busy fools and not getting anything important accomplished at all. This course will show you how to cut through the noise and begin focusing on what matters to you the most. 

'Clarity: A Complete Blueprint For Getting 'Unstuck' in Life’ will teach you how to establish real clarity of thought. You’ll learn how to de-junk your mind, become clear on what your priorities are and as a result of this, develop a compelling vision for the rest of your life.

By the end of this course you will know how to:

  • Make Better Informed & More Results Focussed Decisions.
  • Pinpoint the Specific Causes of Discontentment in Your Life.
  • Overcome Bad Habits that Self-Sabotage your Happiness.
  • Impact Other People in a Positive and More Influential Way.

Our values are central to who we are and give power to every decision that we make.

Understanding what motivates us, and what generates true fulfillment in life allows us to make wiser decisions in line with our main priorities. With no complex theories or superficial anecdotes, this course gets you right to work on defining what’s actually important to you in life.

Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction To Absolute Clarity: A Game Plan For Lasting Happiness & Fulfilment
04:04

Your Life Purpose is About Your Future. It’s About Your Happiness, Who You Wish to Be and What You Wish to Achieve. It’s About Becoming the Greatest Version of You that You are Capable of Becoming.

‘Clarity: A Complete Blueprint For Getting 'Unstuck' in Life’ offers you a transformational self-awareness process, for revolutionising your thought patterns and developing a complete awareness of your behaviours, attitudes and habits (the good ones and the bad).

Your values are central to who you are, and are the driving force behind every decision you make. When people don’t understand what they value the most, the decisions they make can have disastrous consequences and lead them ‘round in circles’ for anything up to a lifetime.

Understanding what motivates you and what you value most, will allow you to make wise and informed decisions, on your terms, which are in line with your top priorities. Your goal setting will never have been easier, and the pursuit of happiness will no longer be a priority for you.

The path to a purpose-driven life can be tough to follow. It isn't one-size-fits-all. So, if you’re ready to get started, we'll begin unpacking the steps you can begin taking today, towards greater fulfilment and a more purpose driven life.

08:23

The meaning of a thing is in its use, and the use of something demonstrates its purpose. Therefore, the purpose of life is that we should seek to find its meaning.

It's our sense of purpose that leads us towards greater purposes in life, and therefore ultimately to establishing our truth. There are an infinite number of things in the world and every thing in infinitely meaningful. But the things that we need are the ones most useful to us, the ones that are suitable for helping us to fulfil our purpose.

Everything and everyone are created for the reason of a purpose. What is the purpose of life? What is the purpose of each life? This is up to each of us to find out. Where the search for meaning leads us to greater heights of knowledge and understanding, our search for a purpose can lead us towards leaving a legacy that might potentially benefit an infinite number of others.

08:53

In a world filled with deadlines, rules, and daily demands, it can be difficult to find ways to relax and live a balanced and fulfilled happy life.

Society has developed numerous tactics to cope with life's pressures. Yoga classes, aromatherapy, and breathing exercises are all remedies to relieve stress but what if the key to a happier, more fulfilling life isn't about looking inward, but is more about looking outward to other people, and the rest of the world around us?

What if helping yourself is as simple as helping another? Studies show it might be as simple as that. A collection of research has shown that the act of giving to those in need, whether that be through charitable donations or volunteering time, has a direct positive effect on your health and overall happiness in life. What’s even better? It doesn’t matter how much time or how large a charitable donation, just the simple act of giving affects people in the same positive way.

Not only does the act of giving positively contribute to your life, but it's of equal importance to those receiving your help. The ultimate gift of giving through donations and volunteerism is the knowledge that someone in need is getting the help they deserve. And if you think about it, giving to other people (instead of merely taking from them) even 'kind of' makes your life make sense!

06:52

“The things you own can very quickly end up owning you. It's only after you lose everything that you're free to do anything.” - Chuck Palahniuk.

There is more joy to be found in pursuing less than what there is in pursuing more. In many ways, this is a message that we already know to be true - but will often forget.

It’s just that, since the day we were born, many of us are told that owning more possessions equal happiness. And because we've heard this message so often and from so many angles, we grow to believe it. As a result, we spend our lives working long and gruelling hours, to make more money so that we can buy more stuff.

But when we again hear the simple message that there is more joy in pursuing less than can be found in pursuing more, it rings true in our hearts, because deep down, we already know it to be true.

We know that possessions don’t equal joy. And we know that our life is far too valuable to waste chasing them. But most commonly, this understanding doesn't prevent us from pursuing them!

Life is significant. Far more than success, our hearts desire significance because significance lasts forever. On the other hand, possessions are temporal. They perish, spoil, and fade away. And most of them are even designed this way.

People who live their lives in pursuit of possessions are never content. They always desire newer, faster, or bigger because material possessions can never satisfy our deepest heart desires.

Be reminded that your life is far too valuable to waste chasing material possessions. And find more fulfillment today by choosing to give more, rather that to just get more.

03:21

“Teacher, teach us to realize the shortness of life so that we may grow in appreciation of life, and of wisdom.” - Ancient Chinese Proverb

If you were to translate this old proverb more literally, you might come up with: “So teach us to number our days, that we might make wiser decisions about how we spend our time.”

What does it mean to number our days? It’s not the ability to count how many days we have lived or to predict how many days we have left. Numbering our days means realizing the brevity of life. It means knowing that we only have so many days on this earth, and therefore, we want to “seize the day,” living each day to the fullest.

However, to develop this life perspective, it can be useful to grasp a 'guest'imation about how many days we might (roughly) have left to live!

Section 2: A Guide To Unlocking & Unleashing Your Potential
02:57

You know that feeling you have after a big meal? Where you’re so full that you actively don’t want anything more? Ever wonder what that would feel like in other parts of your life?

We do so many things for the attention, to feel important or praised. But what if you had so much acceptance and so much praise that you couldn’t possibly want any more?

What would you do then? What would you stop doing?

We commit so much time in our lives to pursuing money, the approval of other people, and praise. It’s built so deeply into our western culture that it takes a real effort to realize it’s the reason behind so many of our actions. But what if you had so much money that you couldn’t possibly want any more?

What would you do then? What would you stop doing?

Yes, we need money to live. We need attention to live, too.

But I find it healthy to make sure they are just side effects of doing good work or living an abundant life.

Answer the questions in the attached worksheet to see how you would begin living differantly if you were to no longer needed money, the approval of other people, or praise. You might be surprised about what your answers will be!

(Also, make sure to follow the external link: What Would You Do If You Weren't Afraid?)

16:53

One of the most inspiring movie lines I've ever heard has to be “My ambition far exceeds my talents,” said by Johnny Depp’s character George Chung in the 2001 movie, Blow.

In order for our ambitions to exceed our talents, we need a complete shift in our thinking, a shift in our mindset and a shift in our approach towards every area in our lives.

Every so often a truly groundbreaking idea comes along that enables us to make this shift.

This is one of those ideas!

04:54

What Will Your Tombstone Say?

Have you thought much about your tombstone lately? I think of my tombstone often, and it encourages, inspires, challenges and pushes me forward. Without a personal mission statement, people can only go so far in life and can very quickly find themselves in a place of stagnicity (either going around in circles or going nowhere at all!).

Use this exercise worksheet in the additional materials to develop a meaningful mission statement for the rest of your life (that determines how it is that you want to be remembered). Work to ensure that your life efforts mean something to the right people that mean the most to you.

06:24

When you think about your current income, do you feel rich, poor, or just plain average?

Many of us probably have no idea (or the wrong idea) about how we compare with the rest of the world population.

Use the calculator (link in the additional materials section) to discover how rich you are globally, adjusting for the cost of living in your country and the size of your household. The calculator also compares your household income to the global average.

You might be surprised at just how rich you are!!

09:16

Have you ever heard the ancient parable of the talents?

A master puts his servants in charge of his goods while he is away on a trip.

Upon his return, the master assesses the stewardship of his servants. He evaluates them according to how faithful each was in making wise investments of his goods to obtain a profit.

It is clear that the master sought some benefit from the servants’ oversight. A gain indicated faithfulness on the part of the servants. The master rewards his servants according to how each has handled his stewardship. He judges two servants as having been “faithful” and gives them a positive reward.

To the single unfaithful servant who “played it safe,” a negative compensation is given.

This story is a parable, and parables can be interpreted a countless number of ways. But the question is, how would you choose to interpret it ... and more importantly, how do you choose to utilise your talents?

08:09

Have you ever felt stressed about not being able to do something?

Of course, you have ... most likely, you'll often have too much on your plate, where deadlines are looming, and people are counting on you. You are under a lot of pressure—so much that at times, you suspect the quality of your whole life suffers for it.

The difference between those who are successful in life and those who aren't is not whether or not you suffer from stress, but how you deal with it when you do.

To deal with life's challenges most effectively ... we all need a strategy!

09:01

So, now that you've heard the parable of the talents ... what does it mean?

Upon returning home, after a long absence, the master asks his three servants for an accounting of the talents he entrusted to them. The first and the second servants explain that they each put their talents to work, and have doubled the value of the property with which they were entrusted; each servant was rewarded:

His master said to each of them, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much.”

The third servant, however, had merely hidden his talent, had buried it in the ground, and was punished by his master:

"Then the one who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Sir, I knew that you were a hard man, harvesting where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter seed, so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.’

But his master answered, ‘Evil and lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I didn’t sow and gather where I didn’t scatter? Then you should have deposited my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have received my money back with interest!

Therefore, take the talent from him and give it to the one who has ten. For the one who has will be given more, and he will have more than enough. But the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.

Take some time to consider the meaning of this story ... because, if you can see it, this offers a whole new dimension to the age-old saying: 'If you don't use it, you'll lose it!'

02:47

Our beliefs constitute a significant part of our knowledge of the world.

We have beliefs about objects, about culture, about the past, and about the future. We have beliefs about other people, and we believe that they have beliefs as well. We use our beliefs to predict, to explain, to create, to console, to entertain.

Some of our beliefs we call theories, and we are extraordinarily creative at constructing them. To live a productive life, we must examine our beliefs: what they do for us, how we come to hold them, and how to evaluate them.

We must assess our beliefs carefully because they influence most of our actions and decisions.

Use the attached worksheet to begin exploring some of your most fundamental and underlying core beliefs - you might be surprised by what you discover!

07:34

As children, the way we learn is by watching and mimicking others. First, we learn to do physical skills like walk and talk. Then we develop social skills by observing and imitating our peers around us.

Finally, in late childhood, we learn to adapt to our culture by following the rules and norms around us and trying to behave in such a way that is considered acceptable by society.

The goal of our learning years is to teach us how to function within society so that we can be autonomous, self-sufficient adults. The idea is that the adults in the community around us help us to reach this point through supporting our ability to make decisions and take action ourselves.

However, our learning years are just our first stage of life in consideration of the bigger picture. In this lecture, my aim is to give a structure for life that'll enable you to number your years.

06:28

The transition is a passage or movement from one stage of life or circumstance or place to another.

Life will require you to change. There are seasons of cultural change, seasons of life changes, seasons of health changes, seasons of career changes, etc.

The beginning of a new year is when most of us reflect on the times, seasons of life and experiences of the past year. Life is a series of transitions. We are always in a process of endings and new beginnings.

In fact, an ancient Hebrew King once wrote, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot…"

A modern day example of this verse might be ending your life as a single adult and beginning new as a married adult, or becoming a caregiver for your aging parent. The reality is change can be difficult.

Seasons are part of life and each comes with its own set of lessons. Every ending is a learning opportunity. You can avoid "going around that same old mountain" by being humble and teachable. Reflect on what you have you learned about yourself? How have you grown?

Never forget that our experiences mold and shape our character in life. So, the question is; how can we successfully transition from one "time" or season to the next?

Section 3: Becoming Acquainted With Yourself
11:51

"All of us are self-made, although it's usually only the successful who admit it!" - Earl Nightingale

Personal growth means you are in a process of looking at your life, how you are feeling, what is missing and what can be improved, and you are actively working on improvement through education, new knowledge, increased awareness and specific changes. You are looking are your belief system and making changes in it.

You are changing your identity to one that more closely aligns with your natural core self, who you really are, what you are really good at and naturally talented in, and what you really want in life.

Throughout this section of the course (and the next), we'll begin to take an in-depth look at what drives you in life, what you're motivated by, and what your natural passions are.

13:32

“Where focus goes, energy flows. And if you don’t take the time to focus on what matters, then you’re living a life of someone else’s design.” - Tony Robbins

Most people blame other people or their circumstances for what they are in life. I don’t believe in circumstances.

In Os Hillman’s book Change Agent, he states: “If we are to impact any nation or change the world, then we will have to affect the seven spheres of influence throughout current society.

These seven spheres of influence are business (the token economy), the government, the media, arts and entertainment, the education system, the family, and religion.

Everyone at some stage in life will find themselves in one of these seven common areas, and what we choose to do in this area (or who we decide to be), will determine the degree of influence (and legacy), that we will ultimately make in the world.

I appreciate that these might seem like some super idea's, however, in this lecture I aim to demonstrate how positive influence can be achievable for everyone.

01:29

A great way to discover what you want in life (and also what’s holding you back) is by asking yourself a series of profound self-reflection questions.

To find your passion in life, you've got to be willing to become intimately familiar with yourself. You must know what drives you, what inspires you, what excites you, what engages you, what scares you, what you do naturally well, what you pretend to like but don’t, and what lies you're saying to yourself!

As you become more familiar with yourself, you’ll be able to determine what’s most important in the limited time you have in a day, a year, and even throughout your lifetime. On doing this, you can maximize your time doing more of what you love and less of what you don’t love.

Most of us are so busy reacting to events in our current lives that we don’t allow the time to examine what’s not working well and why. We certainly don’t take the time to ask ourselves those deeper, probing questions that unearth our authenticity and buried longings.

Any spare time that you're willing to make offers you the perfect opportunity to do this inner reflection and self-investigation.

Print off this workbook, and answer the following questions to begin getting absolute clarity about the steps that you can start taking today towards a life and career that you'll be fully passionate about living.

09:26

So often we look outside of ourselves for answers. On one level this makes sense. If we don’t have an answer, surely someone else must. However, is that really true? Or, do we already have much of the knowledge we need in order to make the decision that is best for us?

I want to reiterate that I am not telling you to stop reading books, going to classes and seminars, buying personal development products, and talking with other people. All of that is critically important, and helps to add to the base of knowledge and experience from which you can pull.

What I am saying is that you have more answers within yourself than you know. First you need to ask the question, then seek the answer, and absolutely be receptive to it.

Look without, but never forget to look within too. You might be surprised at how much you find in there.

03:43

Few facts about daily social life are quite as troubling as this one: very few of us have the faintest idea about how we’re coming across to others.

An iceberg can serve as a useful metaphor to understand how much of ourselves we choose to reveal to other people. As an iceberg floats in the water, the huge mass of it remains below the surface.

Only a small percentage of the whole iceberg is visible above the surface, and the largest and most influential part remains unseen below the surface. In the same way, each of us will often have a part of ourselves that we reveal to others, with the larger part of ourselves being deeply submerged that no-one ever gets to see.

Complete this exercise to explore the parts of you that can be seen and experienced by others, the parts that can't, and the parts that you'd like others to see if you were to show them.

12:43

Here is one of my favourite inspirational tales.

It was not long after the Gods had created humankind that they very soon realised that they had made a huge mistake. The creatures that they had created were so adept, so skilful, so full of curiosity and the spirit of enquiry that it was only a matter of time before they would start to challenge the Gods themselves for supremacy.

To ensure their pre-eminence, the Gods held a large conference to discuss the issue. Gods were summoned from all over the known and unknown worlds. The debates were long, detailed, and soul-searching, and lasted well into the night.

They were all unanimous about one thing. What differentiated the Gods from the mortals that they had created were the differences between the quality of the resources they had. While humans had their egos and were concerned with the external, material aspects of the world, the Gods had spirit, soul, and an understanding of the workings of the inner self.

The Gods realised that sooner or later the humans would want some of that too. And so the Gods decided to hide their precious resources. The question was: where? This was the reason for the length and passion of the debates at the Great Conference of the Gods.

Some suggested hiding these resources at the top of the highest mountain. But it was realised that sooner or later the humans would scale such a mountain.

And the deepest crater in the deepest ocean would be discovered. And mines would be sunk into the earth. And the most impenetrable jungles would give up their secrets.

And then, the Littlest God, who had been silent until now, spoke up. "Why don't we hide these resources inside each human? They will never think to look for them there." And so they did.

Many of us don't think to look within for our answers, but when we do, we'll often find our greatest potential!

14:47

The term self-concept is used to refer to the ideal version of ourselves that we can see ourselves becoming someday.

Your self-worth is the value that you see in yourself. It does not necessarily have to reflect reality. For example, a person with an eating disorder may be thin but believe themselves to be fat and useless. A person's self-worth is affected by many factors, such as parental influences, friends, the media, etc.

Our self esteem is where our emotions enter the equation. The degree of hope that we have for our future self (self-concept), and how we see ourselves today (self-worth), will determine how we feel about ourselves (our self esteem).

In this lecture, I’ll do my very best to illustrate this in more detail.

Section 4: Getting To Grips With Your Core Values
02:35

When we think of our values, we think of what is important to us in our lives (e.g., security, progress, wisdom, honesty, authenticity, fulfillment).

Each of us holds numerous values with varying degrees of importance. A particular value may be paramount to one person, but then completely unimportant to another.

Much like company core values, your personal core values are there to guide behaviour and choice. Get them right and you'll be swift and focused in your decision-making, with clear direction.

Get them wrong or leave them ambiguous, and you'll constantly wonder how you got into this mess!

01:31

Although your personal core values may not exactly match anyone else's, they still help you determine your surrounding culture.

Most smart people consciously or unconsciously use personal core values to select friendships, relationships and business partnerships. Your core values also help you wisely manage your personal resources such as time and money.

Simply put, I use my personal core values as decision guidelines that keep me true to myself, and out of trouble!

10:55

Values are a set of beliefs or views that people hold about what is right or wrong in the world while also reflecting a person's sense of what is 'good' or 'bad'.

They can have a strong influence on an individual's attitude and behaviours, acting as a set of guidelines or rules for how to behave in different situations.

In this section, we will explore a large batch of humanities greatest and most prominent core values (although we may all prioritise the values differently, we all value them none the less!).

05:27

We can summarise the concept of core values as follows:

  • Values are beliefs tied inextricably to emotion. They are not objective or random ideas.
  • Values are a motivational construct. They refer to the desirable goals people strive to attain.
  • Values transcend people's specific actions, behaviours and situations. They are abstract goals.
  • Values guide the selection or evaluation of actions, policies, people, and events.
  • Values serve as our unique personal standards or preferred criteria.
  • Values are ordered by importance upon comparison to one another.
  • People’s values form an ordered system of value priorities that characterize them as individuals.

Understanding what values are is one piece of this puzzle, however understanding how we prioritise these values is a whole different ballgame!

07:48

“Until you make peace with who you are, you will never be content with what you have.” - Doris Mortman

In this lesson, we will explore and discuss more of our most outstanding core values and begin to consider how they are all inherently linked.

People’s life circumstances provide opportunities to pursue or express some values more easily than others: For example, wealthy individuals can seek power values more efficiently, and people who work in the liberal professions can represent self-direction values more transparently.

Life circumstances also impose constraints against pursuing or expressing values. For example: Having dependent children will limit parents to their pursuit of excitement by avoiding risky activities.

Values ... once you understand what motivates you, you'll also understand what motivates other people too!

13:04

“Where focus goes, energy flows. And if you don’t take the time to focus on what matters, then you’re living a life of someone else’s design.” - Tony Robbins

Most people blame other people or their circumstances for what they are in life. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who achieve significant things in life are those who are clear about what's important to them, and then pursue these things with relentless perseverance.

You cannot succeed in life by scattering your forces and trying to do a dozen things at the same time.

13:37

The primary benefit of knowing your values is that you will gain tremendous clarity and focus, but ultimately you must use that newfound clarity to make consistent decisions and take committed action.

So the whole point of discovering your values is to improve the results you get in those areas that are truly most important to you. Values are priorities that tell you how to spend your time, right here, right now!

'Values are not like laws – you cannot break them. You can only break yourself against them' - Mark Wright

11:13

The primary benefit of knowing your values is that you will gain tremendous clarity and focus, but ultimately you must use that newfound clarity to make consistent decisions and take committed action.

So the whole point of discovering your values is to improve the results you get in those areas that are truly most important to you. Values are priorities that tell you how to spend your time, right here, right now!

'Try not to become a person of success but rather try to become a person of value.' - Albert Einstein

06:39

The main benefit of knowing your values is that you will gain tremendous clarity and focus, but ultimately you must use that newfound clarity to make consistent decisions and take committed action.

So the whole point of discovering your values is to improve the results you get in those areas that are truly most important to you. Values are priorities that tell you how to spend your time, right here, right now.

19:13

Your personal values should be an expression of who you are at your core.

It's one thing to "have" values; it's another to "own" them. If you're not committed to them, no one else will be!

01:49

Values exist, whether you recognise them or not. Life can be much easier when you acknowledge your values – and when you make plans and decisions that honour them.

By living out your Core Values, not only will you become more successful, you enjoy your success more. You also achieve your outcomes with less effort and less internal conflict.

Use this workbook to define a list of your own core values and priorities.

Section 5: Understanding your Inner Drivers & Motives
12:50

Did you know, that teaching is one of the highest callings that we can have as human beings?

In this lecture, I'll introduce you to the Continuous Learning Cycle:

1. The first element is HUMILITY. This character quality involves the recognition of needs and the realisation that one does NOT know everything that there is to know about life!

2. Humility leads to a second discipline: hunger or curiosity. This includes the drive and desire to learn and improve in some way.

3. The third element is actual learning. The importance of learning from and learning with other people is a crucial step in learning effectiveness. Bobby Clinton once said that the ability to learn is “the all-purpose tool, the Swiss Army knife, that leaders need to carry at all times.”

4 & 5. Teaching and leading are the fourth and fifth disciplines of unstoppable learning. I put them together since they are so interrelated - learning, teaching and leading are all 100% completely intertwined.

6. Feedback is the sixth discipline of unstoppable learning. As a leader is any area of life (family, work related, socially or influentially) is always teaching and leading, he or she must also be actively learning and developing.

The discipline of getting feedback demonstrates both a learning and growing posture. It then cycles back to humility and then hunger to improve the next time around.

Imagine that you're sitting with a trusted friend 12 months from now. You're looking back over the last 12 months, feeling fulfilled that you've worked hard and that you've made something important happen.

There are no rules or guidelines for these 4 projects; you can work as hard as you want, you have nothing to lose ... and (potentially) everything to gain!

Did I say ONE project? Oops, I meant to say FOUR ;-)

Our element is something that we must invest time into exploring, what is it that we love, what is it we're actually good at and what it is we enjoy doing so much that we can't help but share it with others.

This thing, whatever it is - we would do for sheer pleasure, whether we're paid for it or not - this thing is our direction, this is our purpose, THIS IS OUR ELEMENT!

06:57

Finding your 'element' in life is just one part of the jigsaw ... living it out is something entirely different!

Rejection is often viewed by many as a bad thing in the culture we live in, it is perceived as negative, and we fear rejection. Unfortunately, in life, we will get rejected at some point and how we handle it is crucial.

A lot of us take rejection poorly; it can dent our confidence and self esteem. We can take it personally and start believing we are not good enough, and in believing this it can have an adverse effect on the degree of progress we make in life.

Rejection can stop us living with fulfilment, hinder us getting the job you want, being in the relationship you want and stop us from working towards our life goals ... if we let it!

But what if our main rejections are just trying to point us in the direction of which we must travel? What would this mean for you? And more importantly, what would it mean if you were never to consider this at all?

This video brings the course to a close (for now), and I can only thank you once again for enrolling in the first place, and also for placing your trust in me as your coach.

Moving forward, I will continue to develop the course by adding new resources and study materials (and please feel free to get in touch with me directly if there are topics that you'd like me to produce future videos on).

For now, though, if you'd be happy to take a few minutes to rate and review the course - I'd hugely appreciate it - this will allow other potential 'students of truth' to make a well-informed decision as to whether this is the kind of course that might benefit and help them.

But other that this, God bless, all the best and I'll look forward to hopefully seeing you again in one of my other courses!
