Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a list of what I’m enjoying, learning or pondering.
What I’m reading –
Sacred Stress: A radically Different Approach to Using Life’s Challenges for Positive Change, by George Faller. Stress
is a part of modern life and George discusses ways to use it to grow spiritually, emotionally and psychologically.
George is a leader in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and this work one I have read for myself and now I
refer my clients to read it as well.
What I’m watching/listening to – a two-fer
Marie Forleo interviews Lewis Howes about what our culture gets wrong about masculinity. I think he has some
things to say that are important for our time. It’s thought provoking to say the least.
Another interesting watch is Fred Rogers testifies before the Senate Subcommittee on Communications in 1969.
This short YouTube footage was recommended to me by a friend. If you want to see an inspiring display of verbal
jousting, this is the clip to watch. You’ll see how Mr. Rogers flips a disagreeable member of congress into an ally.
Quote I’m pondering –
“We are not essentially consumers, but adored creatures designed for communion with God and with
each other.” Alan Jones
And as always, please let me know your requests and suggestions on Twitter. Which focus point above is your
favorite? What do you want more (or less) of? Let me know. Just send a tweet to @daniel_jurek and put

Have a wonderful weekend!
