About The Meeting:
Some of us struggle with issues -- planning, timing, focusing, sequencing, decision-making -- that others take for granted. Can some of what's missing be acquired through practice? Can habit formation help? Can skill-building do just that? Can reassessing our goals -- and our strengths -- make a difference? Is mindfulness training likely to pay off? Come to the meeting to find out.
