About Programs And Courses

Hello, I’m Lee Hayden.  Welcome to the Smart Home And Life (SHAL) website’s   Hayden Center For Educational Excellence.  


The Hayden Center  offers  students a  unique  educational opportunity  that complements  public/private  education and  greatly enhances the possibilities for building a more  meaningful, enjoyable, and enriched life.  The Hayden Center recognizes that we human beings all have multiple intelligences. Consequently, each of the  programs, courses, and services  at the Hayden Center builds various aspects of a student’s cognitive, emotional, social, and moral intelligence.  Focus on building all human intelligences instead of mainly our cognitive intelligence as by  public/priviate education is the primary basis for lifestyle enrichment.  These lifestyle enrichment tools are provided at low cost and short instruction schedules.


The Hayden Center’s vision sees people living enriched livestyles because of the knowledge and experiences acquired at the Hayden Center.   Any enriched lifestyle is achievable regardless of the student’s educational starting point or academic status.


At the Hayden Center, the student is encouraged to select a personal lifestyle enrichment program from the following:  self-actualization, personal true-self, or community true-self. Each of these programs is implemented as a set of paired courses designed to achieve the selected program goal.  Each pairing  consists of a free brief course and associated fee-based short course.   Alternatively, instead of selecting a program,  the student may select any individual course if the prerequisite for that course has been satisfied.   The Hayden Center provides the educational environment that supports the student’s attainment of the selected lifestyle enrichment program or coursework.


Brief courses introduce and   summarize the key ideas  contained in the associated fee based short course.  Reviewing free brief courses is recommended before selection of a fee-based short course or program.  However, your startup methodology is your choice.


Short courses are uniquely beneficial because they are conducted in a  face-to-face in person or on-line learning environment which assures the studied material becomes working knowledge.  As brief/short course author ,  I sincerely strive to produce courses whose content meets or exceeds common standards of excellence, objectivity, reliability, and life enrichment.  To enroll in the short course, phone Lee at 702-945-1294.


The Hayden Center is a learning environment which places high value on the studied material becoming working knowledge.  As brief/short course author ,  I sincerely strive to produce courses whose content meets or exceeds common standards of excellence, objectivity, reliability, and life enrichment.  To enroll in the short course, phone Lee at 702-945-1294.





The curiosity or awareness that an enriched lifestyle is within the realm of possibility  is a major step forward.


A few typical problem situations and suggested solutions are presented below.

Problem Set #1.  Perhaps you are an adult who has struggled with poor self-esteem since childhood. You now recognize that poor self-esteem is affecting all your relationships including career, marriage, and friendships. Your ego is bruised easily. You are feeling lonely and want a more meaningful and happy life.  On the other hand, you enjoy a favorite sport and building a successful business. Solution  Set #1. Self-actualization program containing self-esteem course and other related courses.


Problem Set #2.  Perhaps you are a student with a poor academic standing. You realize the importance high academic standing  to future success but can’t improve because of too many other commitments or interests.  You are thinking about asking for help. You could focus on a specific subject and schedule your work with a tutor.  Although more expensive, you could work under the guidance of a mentor. Solution Set #2. Tutor Service or Mentor Service.

Problem Set #3.  Perhaps you are a student with a poor academic standing. You realize the importance high academic standing  to future success but are very unmotivated to learn. Actually, you frequently fear an inability to learn, avoid the learning environment, believe many classmates don’t respect you, and often feel angry. You are thinking about asking for help. You could focus on a specific subject and schedule your work with a tutor.  Although more expensive, you could work under the guidance of a mentor. Solution Set #3. Tutor Service or Mentor Service


Problem Set #4. Perhaps you have been successfully living a lifestyle in actuality with an avoidance of scientific knowledge. You have never really liked science, but maybe knowledge of science could add a new dimension to your understanding of reality. Perhaps you have a growing sense of a need to be more spiritual.    Solution Set #4. Self-actualization program.


Problem Set #5.  Perhaps you want an awesome life with more meaning but don’t know how to achieve it.  Perhaps, on an increasing number of occasions,  you have been wonderstruck at the recognition that you are part of the fabric of the universe.  Perhaps you have never given much thought to the reality provided by our universe  but wonderstruckness morphs into astonishment and devotion.  Solution Set #5.  Personal True-Self Program


Problem Set #6. Consider your first reaction to the following picture.  

















Your first reaction may be:

  1.   1. “That is a desert-mountain scene.”
  2.   2, “What a beautiful desert-mountain scene!”
  3.   3. “Wow.  What a majestic and inspirational desert-mountain scene!”
  4.   4. “I’m awed and astonished at nature’s creation!  I’m in the presence of something    greater  than myself!”


The picture is generally perceived as a mundane desert-mountain scene. If your first reaction is 1 or 2, then you, like the majority of people, may benefit from this webste by becoming a more self-actualized person.  If your first reaction is 3 or 4, then you may benefit from this website by becoming your personal true-self or community true-self.  Regardless of your first reaction, however, participation in a low level Hayden Center educational program may lead to an interest in a higher level educational program. Solution Set #6  Personal True-Self Program or Community True-Self Program.


The Hayden Center provides both a quality learning environment  and multiple educational programs, with a set of related  courses, leading toward various levels of personal growth.  The highest levels of personal growth  are better known as  lifestyle   enrichment programs.  A student may enroll in either a program with money saving benefits or any individual course.

All programs and courses offered by the Hayden Center are for personal growth and lifestyle enrichment. The programs and courses have not  sought or plan to seek  accreditation by any local, state, or national governmental authority.  


The courses  provide  1) tutorial services for middle school,  high school, and college  students, 2) short  courses for students of all ages (middle schoolers to adults and seniors) seeking lifestyle expansion and personal growth, and 3) long courses for students of all ages seeking traditional public school systems knowledge.    All courses are structured by student and instructor prior to course startup to satisfy student/instructor scheduling,  meeting location, and level of instruction requirements


Current Lifestyle Programs offered are 1) Self-Reinvention, 2) Self-Actualization, 3) Personal True-Self, and 4) Community True-Self.  Except for Self-Reinvention program,  each program is an amplification of the previous program. Each program consists of pairs  of free brief courses and an associated fee based short course.  The brief courses are presented online and summarize the associated short course. The short courses are presented face-to-face either online or person-to-person.  The brief courses are informative but the short courses provide subject proficiency and mastery.



Each program consists of a set of courses which  transition the student from their initial  state of being, through  a state of becoming, to a final state of being.  The final state of being corresponds to completion of a program objective such as re-inventing their life, or discovering their true-self.  Achievement of this objective is imperative in order  to assure future leadership possesses  a full range of knowledge and understanding capable of  addressing and solving the increasingly complex societal issues already emerging.  .





The Short Courses reflect my personal selection, assessment, and understanding of  the best  sources of knowledge and inspiration presently available.  I apologize in advance for any imperfections of understanding.


Each Short Course  is usually accompanied by a Brief Course.  Each Brief Course is intended to provide a glimpse into the associated Short Course. Thus, the Brief Course content only partially represents the Short Course content.  The Brief Course provides a table of contents that identifies each chapter in the associated Short Course, but does not necessarily provide content for each chapter. As just mentioned, each short course is highly interactive and dialog based.  A certificate of completion, including letter grade, is provided at completion of the short course.  The letter grade is based primarily on the student’s degree of participation sincerity.


The term  “student” refers to any  middle school, high school, college/university, or adult  person.  Each course is tailored in realtime  to the projected needs of each individual student.  The number of course sessions required to complete a given course varies from student to student.  However, the course cost remains the same.


Please review or study the brief courses and  then sign-up for those short courses that will be personally beneficial.
