The Things That Matter Video Series is a six-week online course, hosted by me, to help you apply the principles of the book to your unique life. 

The course includes videos, practical application challenges (daily, weekly, & monthly) and motivational emails to keep you focused on removing the distractions that keep us from our most meaningful life.
