Enabling Alexa Skills
Alexa skills are new voice-driven capabilities that enhance the functionality of your Alexa device.
To enable the 21 Dayz skill for your Amazon Echo, Fire TV or other Alexa enabled device, simply follow these instructions:
- Open the Amazon Alexa app on your mobile device or in your browser by going to http://alexa.amazon.com.
- Open the left navigation panel, and then select Skills.
- Scroll through the list of available skills.
- For 21 Dayz, select Enable.
The way it works is simple. You enable the 21 Dayz skill in the Amazon Alexa mobile companion app, then say to the Alexa enabled device such as Echo, “Alexa, start 21 Dayz”. Then 21 Dayz, guides you through a preliminary setup process where you are asked what you would like to focus on first, “business” or “personal”. Our course is listed under “business”, the subcategory is “growth”.
Once the selection is made, the 21 day course begins. Starting with day 1, it will verbalize a brief abstract lesson on how to start to thinking about the goals, whatever it may be. In addition to the daily lessons, there is a task, affirmation or intent to help you focus on your goals throughout the day. On day 2, when the you say “Alexa, start 21 Dayz”, Alexa will ask if you accomplished the previous day goals or intent. If the you say “no”, the previous day is repeated. If the you says “yes”, the second lesson in the course begins, and it continues each day for 21 days with the end goal being that you accomplish the goals.
