When you enjoy the tasks in front of you, it’s easier to get started, keep going, and complete your projects. Enjoyment helps you to get in the flow and it stimulates your creative juices. Get Motivated and Get it Done helps you to become more productive and enjoy the process.
Although I designed this course for busy professional women, anyone can benefit from it. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to experiment.
This short, easy course can change tasks that you KNOW are dreadful and that have never been enjoyable into something you experience with pleasure. This approach works because I guide you through the ways to focus your attention, change your perspective, and create a new context for your tasks. You will be asked to reflect on ways that you can adapt the different strategies to your own particular personality and tasks.
Within one short hour, you'll be creating your own Disliked Task Enjoyment Plan to put what you've learned into practice. To take you there, the course videos and presentations highlight perspectives, strategies, and techniques. Journal assignments take you a step further by guiding you through the adoption of these practices into your life.
When you apply the techniques in this course, you can appreciate and enjoy tasks that you normally would dread. This can lead to reducing procrastination, increasing creativity, improving the quality of your work, and increasing your productivity. Along the way, you'll gain tools to make your whole life more fun. Join me on this motivational tour to get things done.
