Dr. Jim will begin by
interviewing you. The interview is built on 34 questions. Your answers

the 34 questions are like your finger print, there are no two alike. For
this reason, the plan built on your unique answers will be personal and

Q7 What kind
of support will Dr. Jim give me?
With every habit Dr. Jim
suggests, he will provide you with a tutorial. The tutorial will be
available 24/7 so you can review it whenever and as frequently as you feel
the need. In addition, the two habits you are focusing on will be
highlighted on your own Home Page. Then each Tuesday, Dr. Jim will send you
an e-mail to remind you of the business habit and personal habit that you
are working on.
happens when I conquer one of the habits I’m working on?
The Surround Support™
System is dynamic. On your Home Page you click on “Assessment.” Here is
where you tell Dr. Jim that you have now mastered one of the habits you are
working on. He will immediately choose the next most important habit that
you need to become an Aligned
Thinker. As with every habit he suggests, he
will provide a tutorial to help you get started. The reminder on the
following Tuesday will contain the new habit.
Q9 Can you
give me an example of a habit I need and the tutorial support Dr. Jim will
provide with the Surround Support™ System?
Gladly! Critical to all
achievement, satisfaction and inner fulfillment is knowing WHAT YOU REALLY
WANT. Knowing WHAT YOU REALLY WANT is also the motivation for every action
and the goal of every action for the Aligned
Thinker. However, even though
it is very beneficial, experience shows that less that 5% have ever written
exactly what they want from work and life, i.e. their business and personal
missions. This is the case because it is challenging to write a business
and personal mission.
Dr. Jim will ask you
four well-chosen questions that take only a few minutes to answer. Once you
press “submit,” he will arrange your answers into business and personal
missions. He will also put your new business and personal missions on your
Home Page. When you return there next, your missions will be there so you
can easily review them.
Q10 Where did
Surround Support and Dr. Jim come from?
Dr. R. James Steffen has
studied how to optimize your business and personal life for thirty years
with the help of his staff and 140 Fortune 500 Companies by teaching the
Aligned Thinking™ Workshop/Experience. With the help of some
very insightful programmers, he designed the Aligned
Institute. It is designed to be very interactive so that with Dr. Jim as
your virtual personal coach you can become an Aligned Thinker and enjoy all
its benefits as quickly as possible.
