The most important skills we need to thrive today are critical thinking, problem solving, the ability to acquire and understand complex new information... the foundation for all these skills is focus.
Most people are training themselves to be distracted. Most people are learning shallow work styles that get little done. Learning to focus can give you the edge in a distracted world.
This course will give you a foundation of psychology in focus. We'll talk about your brain, your energy levels and your environment. The last section will be more practical, building on all this psychology, I'll be handing over the tools you need to get the most out your focused working practice.
The psychology will give you an understanding of why your doing it and the tools will tell you how. It's important to me that you understand the reasons you're doing any activity so you'll continue using the tool for many years.
It's been 5 years since I started working in elearning. I understand the limitations and the possibilities of online teaching. I'm excited for the future and I'm amazed at what we can do right now.
It's been 10 years since I first taught a class. I spent three years teaching english in Seoul. I loved seeing the progress of my students and I loved knowing they were having a good time in my class. I learnt about how to write a solid lesson plan the only way I believe anyone can... by seeing the results right there in front of me.
It's been 15 years since I first designed and built a website. I remember learning dreaweaver and flash while I was a student and been hooked on the power it gives us, even then I didn't know how far it would go. I've dedicated my life to building and designing web apps to the highest standard and now I want to pass that on.
It's been 30 years since I started school. and I wasn't that good at school truth be told. I had dyslexia and couldn't keep up, having overcome that and managed to find ways to teach myself the skills I need to get some fantastic jobs I'm confident I can explain things in a way everyone can understand and, knowing how much I struggled to learn, I can be very patient in explaining how things need to be done.
I believe all the skills I have built over the years all add up to making great online course to help you move forward with your goals and I look forward to working with you on them
