Refiner's Fire with Lieutenant General Steven Kwast

14 Apr 2021
12:00pm - 12:30pm CDT

Refiner’s Fire Episode 4: The Power of Habit will be
LIVE on Wednesday, April 14th, at 12pm CT and you don’t want to miss our interviewee, Lieutenant General Steven Kwast. Mark your calendars and invite a few coworkers to join you for a 30-minute interactive conversation with an executive who has spent his life mastering the art of peaceful international affairs and national security strategies.

The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. You hear this when it comes to your spiritual growth too, that it takes discipline for prayer and reflection time to become a habit in the midst of your busy schedule. Virtues (prudence, justice, temperance, and courage) are habits. If we develop good habits, we then become virtuous and overall better people. This impacts all aspects of your life - including your work and how you perform it.
