I know quite a few people who were lax about davening with a minyan, who got to appreciate it while serving time at the Omud and kept on going.
I heard a line once, תפילות, אבות תקנום.

Many Chabad house minyanim started because the shliach or a community member had to say kaddish.
I don't sin, I give myself opportunities to repent.

I personally started answering אמן etc. louder, as I got an appreciation of what it means to be at the Omud and feel like you're davening in a בית החיים where you can hear no feedback.

True feel the same on that.

Or 10 minutes after any fasts end...
However unlike most other shuls you can actually get a minyan together in 770 even late after a fast.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

A pet-peeve of mine when you have been in Shul for a while pulling together your Minyan, and another Chiyuv who comes later, starts pulling theirs at the same time. If they get 5 first, they start, pulling the 4 that you already had, and you gotta start all over again.

Aka another chiyuv who isn't a mensch. There are many ways that comes out.

The following post and on was split off to a new topic, please continue the discussion there
One thing I did when I was an avel (and am trying to continue) is leave my cellphone at home or in my car.  I found that I davened better.  - even if the cellphone is totally turned off if it was in my pocket it was a distraction.  I figured if I am going to daven for the amud for 11 months, let me at least try to daven like a mentsh.
