Testimonies from participants of “Getting into the Groove” Workshop in Manila on February 1, 2016:

Since Feb-3, I have been planning my day through a checklist. So far, I’ve been accomplishing tasks more than ever, plus I have an additional list to do by next week already!

The 2-minute rule (I always tag it as the 2-minute miracle) helps me to accomplish tasks faster and keeps my memory intact with the things I have to do. Last night, my husband Third commented that he’s proud of me excelling in this area and said that I am already improving especially on buying things from the grocery store!

We’ve been putting our phones away every morning and we plan to buy a real alarm clock instead.

I also included in my calendar that I wouldn’t watch TV unless almost all of the things I have to do are already accomplished!

I plan to share this with our scholars and my discipleship group next week so they can form new habits too and become more excellent!”

- Kate Kho, campus missionary, Every Nation Philippines

“Thanks so much Jo-e for the workshop! My new habit is not checking my phone when I wake up in the morning, including email, facebook and instagram. I decided to add not checking or watching CNN (since I am a news addict!) until 8am every day. I did it on Feb-2 & 3 and had such an amazingly peaceful morning which was 100% more tuned into God!!! I had a brief relapse this morning when I woke up and reflexively reached for the remote and turned on CNN… but then I remembered the 30-day challenge and turned it off…!!! Tonight I will hide the remote so that it is not within arm’s reach of my bed… haha!!! I am also going to start using my Fitbit as my alarm clock instead of my cellphone so that I do not see any notifications when I turn off my alarm clock.”

- Lynn Nawata, trainer, Day2 International

“I am ready for the 30-day challenge! No notifications in my iPad to focus on what I am doing. Hiding my cellphone so that I will not look at it first things in the morning and while talking to someone or in a meeting. Planning my day, waking up early and observing my 7-8 hours of sleep. Not to be late in my schedule and appointments. I will declutter my table, clost, iPad and cellphones. I will not multi-task but focus for at least 20 minutes with that I am doing. Keep a calendar, file, put reminders on the things that clutter my mind and check them once ina while. We can do it!!!”
