New Worksheet

Tucked away is a new worksheet in the Theme Advantage area. It helps to generate ideas to keep themes alive on a regular basis. Called the Rhythm of Motivation, it helps your client to maintain their energy by feeding their themes. Originally it was developed for a client entering retirement following full-time employment. The worksheet helped her to structure her day, week and month with events based on her themes to maintain her motivation.
