by Hillary Rettig, author of The 7 Secrets of the Prolific
Inspiration exists and is available to everyone at nearly any time. Underproductivity, procrastination, and blocks are solvable problems. The secret to achieving a state of near-perpetual inspiration (a.k.a., “flow”) is to switch from a scarcity to an abundance mindset, and also from a shame/blame mindset to one focused on problem-solving. In this workshop by Hillary Rettig, author of the best-selling The 7 Secrets of the Prolific, we’ll delve deep into the heart of underproductivity so you can see, once and for all, what forces are holding you back. Then we’ll discuss solutions—lots of them—that you can start using to immediately boost your productivity and reduce stress.
