Pre-registration is encouraged to facilitate a more streamlined start time (& so that we know that we have enough people coming to run the class!) Walk-ups should show up at least ten minutes early. This is an outdoor workshop held under our big event tent.
The workplace situation all over the world is changing, though, with ever increasing entrepreneurism, and more people working from home or their own offices, wearing many hats, working odd hours in an un-structured environment. Although this can be a rush, there is a high burnout level among entrepreneurs, especially solopreneurs. I know of that which I speak, because I am a solopreneur, and have experienced burnout at various times in my past.
I’m tired of burnout and the procrastination it can give birth to, so I resolved to research and develop strategies and tactics to deal with them, with as little stress as possible. Most of the things I have found and/or created are fun to do once you give them a try.
Most of the methods we discuss will benefit anyone who works, studies, or creates. Anyone who needs to remember or concentrate better can learn something to help themselves.
They don’t all work for everyone. Nothing does, and I’m appalled at the amount of hucksters that promise “instant,” “mega,” “phenomenal,” and “miracle” methods. I am not offering that kind of hype. This is a journey with lots of paths to try out. Explore which ones suit you best.
"My real claim to being able to help is not that I am great at this stuff, it’s that I was terrible at it and have made great improvements.The problem with most memory or productivity courses is that they are run by people who don’t have a clue what it’s like to be bad at those things. They know what it’s like to be good at them, but they don’t know what it’s like to improve from bad to good. They don’t know what we struggle with. They offer solutions that work (or sometimes don’t even do that) for them, but would not work for us"—Brian Foley.
