It was August of last year. I was at home reading the Artisan Soul, by Erwin McManus around 1 am. At this time in my life I wasn’t pleased with certain aspects of my life. I felt compelled to refocus mentally, spiritually, and physically. This book inspired me to craft my life into a work of art that I could be proud of. I immediately started not only redefining areas of my life, but think about tools that might help others do the same. I decided to create a 2015 daily planner that includes dream planning and a refocus cloud to help one track their journey.
