I am so thrilled to invite you to my first How To Get Sh*T Done: A Modern Look at Feminine Productivity Seminar at the prestigious 1440 Multiversity! (Past hosts include Elizabeth Gilbert and Cheryl Strayed!)
This is a weekend program Feb 21-Feb23, 2020 in the stunning Santa Cruz County.
is a fundamental (unexamined) assumption that productivity means getting more
stuff done. Blind acceptance of this idea has led to burn out, frustration, exhaustion
and a lack of purpose, but nowhere more so than with women. Already tasked with
doing the lion’s share of work at home, women who are trying to carve out a
professional life, in a system created by and for men, find themselves in a
constant swirl of fear, shame and guilt that what they are doing is never
enough. While we have made tremendous strides across the board, trying to fit
our round pegs into an age-old square, will never, ultimately be what’s best
for us or those around us.
this course, I want to lead an exploration about what true productivity really
is. The word itself, is inherently flawed. Product-ivity. The whole idea
centers around a product – a thing – not a human experience. So, our first task
is to get the product out of the way, and the human, YOU, front and center.
This task, again, is generally far more difficult for women to do, as we’re
constantly putting everything and anything in front of our own needs. This
however, is not a sustainable practice, if we’re interested in living, full,
robust lives, on our own terms. To tackle this conventional idea of
productivity, we are going to have to undo much of what we took for granted
about what it means to really getting stuff done in order to create an
effortless forward momentum.
a personal productivity plan, specifically tailored for you
how focusing on yourself, ultimately helps everyone else
- Do a
critical deep-dive on how you are using your time (and how you could be
doing it much more effectively)
the words and behavior that are self-sabotaging
examine the relationships in your life that are either holding you back or
holding you up, and the guilt that accompanies them
how to outsource and avoid burnout
a self-care plan that helps refuel and brings meaning
learning new and innovative ways to access and step into our personal power, we
will come away with a fuller sense of who we are, what we want and just how to
get it, without the exhaustion or the guilt.
So, if you feel like you’re giving life your all, but barely making any headway, or are ‘successful’ but feeling totally drained and disillusioned, I hope you’ll join me to learn how to shift your focus so you can discover your purpose, for as I say in my book, “you may feel like the most productive person in the world, but without a purpose, you’re just busy.”
Think you could benefit from a weekend of focusing on yourself ? Working on who you are and creating the blue print of where you want to go and how you’re going to get there?
Join me Feb 21-23 for this life changing seminar! I would love to meet and connect with you in person!
Erin shows overscheduled, overwhelmed women how to do less so that they can achieve more. Traditional productivity books—written by men—barely touch the tangle of cultural pressures that women feel when facing down a to-do list. How to Get Sh*t Done will teach you how to zero in on the three areas of your life where you want to excel, and then it will show you how to off-load, outsource, or just stop giving a damn about the rest.
