30 Day Being and Doing Course

Why New Years Resolutions Don't Work

Every year on Jan 1st, millions of people around the globe set a course for a new life.

And every year right around late February and March, all these countless goals and resolutions universally seem to fall apart.

What is the disconnect here?

The problem is our external growth and behavior is always directly correlated to our internal growth and understanding. We simply cannot sustain lasting exterior change without first enacting interior change. Our willpower can only take us so far, and for most of us that is late February and March.

Building new habits is such an attractive proposition, but habit formation isn't easy. While we all want to change, but we all struggle to change.

The secret to building better habits and fuller lives is to first learn to see the world differently. It all starts with understanding. 

The Monk's Way - A New (Old) Way of Being. 

This course can change your life. 

I believe it can change your life, because the ideas it holds have already changed mine. I am a fundamentally different person than I was before encountering the concepts I will share with you over the first 30 days of 2020.

This course is not a how-to for the Monk Manual. This course is a how-to for being and doing, for finding a greater sense of fullness and peace in your relationship to your time, your work, and yourself. And it's all free, no strings attached. I hope you will join us.


All the best,

Steven Lawson

Founder - Monk Manual






How much time do I need to commit to the course?

Each day we will send a you a new video roughly 2-3 minutes in length. While we will have occasional exercises and tools that accompany the days lesson you should expect spending less 5 minutes a day.

Will this course be offered again in the future?

Potentially, but at this time we have no plans of rerunning this course.

Can I invite others?

Yes. While this course was designed to serve our current Monk Manual users, anyone interested in growing in being and doing can benefit from the course. While the Monk Manual will be referenced - it is not a requirement. If you would like to invite others simply share this sign up page with them.

Is this really free? What is the catch?

There is no catch - this course is 100% free. At the core of the Monk Manual is a desire to serve people and help them live fuller lives - this is one way we hope to accomplish that mission.

Is there anything I need to do to prepare for the course?

If you haven't already we invite you to read through our 10 Principles prior to taking the course. We also suggest setting aside a 5 minute block on your schedule every day to take the course.
