On today's episode, Mark, Joe, and Russ discus a Recovery Environment. What things attract us to certain meetings?
Russ shares that being greeted at a new meeting when he enters a new meeting creates a welcoming environment which makes him feels comfortable.
Joe shares that as a new guy two people greeted him immediately as he entered the club. Joe thinks it's important to address anyone who he does not recognize just in case the guy is new.
Russ shared that a 90 in 90 was recommended at some of his first meetings. 90 in 90 is making 90 meetings in 90 days. This allowed Russ to find the kind of meetings he felt comfortable.
Now Russ looks for meetings that have easy parking. Joe shares that today, he looks for meetings that are "step" focused. All of us tend to like meetings toward the end of the day.
