Overcoming the  Ready – Aim – Aim – Aim Syndrome: Fix It or Forget It!

Saturday, October 17, 2020   9:00 to 11:00 MT   $25.00

Sometimes the best use of our will is to drop it all and just walk out from under everything that is covering us, even if only for an hour or so. They’ll be there when we get back, and maybe some of them will fall apart without our worry to hold them up. Wouldn’t that be nice? Mark Nepo

We live in a Just Do It culture. And now with Stay At Home, you are expected to do not just “it,” but “everything.” 

My belief about this is that if you didn’t want to do it before, you probably don’t want to do it now. I also believe that not everything that needs doing needs to be done well or, for that matter,. done at all. I call this the “Fix It or Forget It” approach to life.

In this workshop, we’ll look at how you can identify what needs doing and what doesn’t. For the things you decide are worth doing, you learn how to find your motivation for getting started, keeping going, and then actually finishing. You will also discover the sheer joy that comes from deciding how you can forget about everything you decide you simply don’t want to fix!

Finding and Unleashing Your Inner Tigger: Because If You’re Gonna Pounce, You’ve Got To Have Some Bounce!

Saturday, November 7, 2020   9:00 to 11:00 MT   $25.00

Tigger. Noun. (plural Tiggers) An overly enthusiastic or energetic person, often characterized by bouncing.

Tigger is a fictional tiger character originally introduced in the 1928 story collection  The House at Pooh Corner , the sequel to the 1926 book  Winnie-the-Pooh  by  A. A. Milne . Boisterous and exuberant, Tigger is wonderful and one-of-a-kind. He eagerly shares his enthusiasm with others—whether they want him to or not.

 Tiggers are cheerful, outgoing, competitive in a friendly way, resilient, claim to like everything (even if they secretly don’t), interact with others exuberantly (even if others don’t like it), and have complete confidence in themselves.

We all know at least one Tigger. We are annoyed by them. We are puzzled by them. We admire them. We also secretly want to be like them. 

In this workshop, you learn about the Tigger approach to life and how you can put a little bounce in your pounce!

Overcoming Passenger Mode: How to Stop Going Along for the Ride and Get Back in the Driver’s Seat

Date TBD   $25.00

Each of us, at one time or another, has been in what I call “passenger mode.” Passenger mode occurs whenever we allow someone else to do something for us that we pay silent witness to. It can be anything to unclogging a toilet, changing a tire, balancing a checkbook, or fixing a leaky faucet.

There is nothing inherently good or bad about being in passenger mode. We do not need to know how to do everything that comprises our daily lives. But you can’t know what those things are until you take inventory of everything in your life that someone else does for you, but that someday YOU might need or want to know how to do yourself – or you don’t want to know.

And why is this especially important right now? My guess is that the Stay At Home and Social Distancing rules revealed how ALL of us have been in passenger mode in one way or another.

The key to getting back in the driver’s seat is to identify what you do know and what you don’t know BEFORE YOU HAVE TO KNOW IT OR DO IT!

In this workshop we’ll look at the three steps you take to overcome passenger mode. Then we’ll move onto the hands-on exercises where you’ll learn how to do those things that you can do in advance so that the emotional part of a life event doesn’t cloud your judgment or render you incapable of action.
