A Workshop for Creative People Working in All Disciplines Who Want to Overcome Procrastination, Finish Projects and Get On With Their Lives
led by Hillary Rettig
Description: Procrastination, perfectionism and writer's block are
NOT caused by laziness, lack of discipline or lack of commitment.
Rather, they are habits rooted in fear and scarcity - and the great news
is that once you start addressing those problems, the procrastination
itself is often remarkably easily solved. This lively and interactive
workshop by The Seven Secrets of the Prolific author Hillary Rettig
will teach you how. First, we'll characterize the major barriers that
inhibit productivity, including perfectionism, resource constraints,
time constraints, ineffective writing processes; ambivalence, bias and
internalized oppression; unresolved toxic rejections; and disempowering
career paths. And then Hillary will give you concrete strategies for
resolving them! Expect to go home empowered and able to do your work
