My niece asked me what I was doing this week and I told her, I’m teaching another online workshop. Huh. She said. What’s the class about this time?
And so in a quick text message I explained to her what everyone is going to learn in the 3 +1 day course. And in fact I explained it a lot better than I have in any of my posts.
So if you were borderline about taking tonight’s The Art of Doing MORE Stuff, because you weren’t sure if you’d like it or what you’d learn this text message is for you.
“On Tuesday I’m going to talk about how to get yourself organized and the psychology behind getting motivated and doing things. It’s an understanding of why we do and don’t do things.
Then Wednesday everyone works on their own at home with a work module I’ve made specifically for this course. It involves writing lists of things you want and need to get done. Big lists. Large lists. Then each task on that list gets broken down in a variety of ways. By the end of the exercise everyone will have a list of 10 things that they’re going to get done by the end of the summer.
Thursday everyone comes back to my kitchen (via live video) with their lists and together we’re going to choose 3 things from everyone’s lists. Those 3 things are going to get done before the first long weekend of the summer. So everyone will have crossed 3 of the things off of their to-do list by the next workshop check up in 2 weeks time.
That in turn feeds the fire. Working in a group like this is a great way for people to motivate each other, and because they’re going to accomplish so much in just 2 weeks they’ll be able to motivate themselves for the rest of their list into the summer.
Also everyone gets to share their completed projects and brag about them in one of my posts. So that’s fun.”
My actual text message had a lot more typos. But that’s the very quick yet very accurate synopsis of what you’ll do and learn in the workshop.
Click here if you want to sign up. It’s not too late! It all starts tonight at 8:00 p.m. E.S.T.
I’ll see all of you who are joining me tonight from the comfort of my kitchen with a cat in my lap and a drink in my hand! It’ll probably just be a coffee. At the very least it’ll be in a coffee mug.
Oh! And my niece’s response to my explanation of the class? Wow!! That’s ambitious!!! Yes. Yes it is. Which is why this site is called The Art of Doing Stuff, not The Art of Thinking about Doing Stuff.
Come on. Commit to doing stuff.
For one thing you’ll realize that doing stuff is easy. It’s the worrying about all the stuff you’re always putting off that’s exhausting and stressful.
