Do you have unfinished projects? Are you anxious or feeling unproductive? And tired of procrastination?
Hey friends! My name is Sarah Edwards, TPCT’s Project Coordinator! I wanted to share, with you, that I designed a productivity/procrastination class on Skillshare, a creative learning platform. Because I designed this course with mental health in mind, I wanted to give you all access!
By clicking the link below, you get a FREE MONTH of Skillshare, an amazing creative and lifestyle space. Information and trailer on the class below!
Welcome to the class that puts an investment into the thing that matters most: you. You are the changemaker, creator, visionary, designer, and builder of your life. From the stories you tell, the experiences you have in this work, to the things you create. Therefore, you are your most valuable asset for creativity.
If you’ve been facing any creative roadblocks lately, this class is for you.
As creatives, the first thing we tend to throw out when we’re stressed are ideas. We abandon our work because we don’t know what we’re trying to achieve, how to handle doubt, or know the detailed steps to reach the finish line.
When I faced this for many years myself, I became determined to find a solution because I recognized my lack of process was also creating a lack of success in my creative endeavors. And the further I dug down, the more I uncovered the ecosystem of what I like to call, “universal creativity”. I also uncovered common things in the working culture. Which has led me to think that we need to relearn. Which I’m here to do today.
As a neurodivergent, I discovered quickly as a child that I wasn’t like a lot of other people. So I’ve had to work differently from a lot of other people.
I’ve grown up with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (c-PTSD), and am a suicide survivor as well as various physical handicaps and chronic illnesses. And it’s taught me that despite those conditions, we all actually, regardless of makeup, need to work in our own way. We need our own process.
I believe success is possible for every creative. The question is, do you have YOUR process to get there – not just a process? I discovered in most education systems, workflows are designed for us by teachers. And our job is to follow them. The same can be said for households, families and jobs.
Oftentimes, we’re not directly taught how to build our own workflow. So, I took years of work, self-discovery and creative failure (and a little success) and over the last five months compiled it for you today. Together, we’re going to build a strong, lifelong, and personalized workflow that can change your life. As well as give you a daily system that will guide you to success and alleviate mental pressures for any creative project of any length or size.
A workflow is simply a structure that helps you reach milestones, goals and deadlines, but its simplicity touches everything, and it’s the line between completing your next creation and it never being more than an idea.
So in addition to workflow we’re also going to learn new methods of brainstorming so you can turn thoughts into big ideas. Become your own project manager who can handle all types of creative endeavors.
Teach you the secret sauce to creative success to crush procrastination. Identify your strengths and weaknesses and make them your superpowers, and hopefully overcome burnout while being mindful of your personal mental health and wellness.
I want you to feel empowered that when you hit a roadblock or receive a rejection, you don’t have to see it as a no. Just not yet. Instead, it’s a problem to solve, and today, I’m going to teach you how to redefine failure so that falling excites you because you have a dependable plan in place.
I’m not only going to teach you the lifelong skill of breaking down a project and finding your workflow, but to give you the mindset to always be taking active experiences and teachings to adjust and add to your process to continue your personal and creative growth. And with that, I think it’s time to get started! Are you with me?
Together, in this class packed with extensive tools and a workbook, we’ll help you:
Not only will you get a 35+ page workbook, but I’ll also introduce you to an optional new software that I currently use for all things creative – such as personal projects, professional clients and even my own wedding planning! As a bonus, we’ll also cover workspace tips; eliminating distractions, having grace and redefining failure and success!
