Bethesda - The Stuck Creative Meetup

Learn How To Self-Coach to Get That Book, Painting, Screenplay, Idea, Invention or Any Other Project Started and Done

Got a project shoved away in the drawer and you can't pick it up again? Don't have a project but know you want to do more with your life?

Getting projects done is tough work, especially if they are something that is an "add-on", meaning that this project is something we want to do when our regular life things are under control and done---our job, household stuff, visiting with friends, family, and pets, etc, etc., etc. When and how can we ever get down to our projects!?

-New topics discussed in each meeting
-Old topics reviewed
-Goal?  To Get Unstuck!

Learn the secrets of overcoming:

-the challenges we face every time we start (or restart) a project
-our worse enemy, our inner critics
-no time
-not knowing where to start
-lack of focus while you work and when you don't work
-lack of self-discipline and persistence (these are different skills)

Learn the secrets of building:

-upon your strengths and values
-your ability to work with others to get your project done
-your ability to create a strong vision of what you want to do
-your ability to discover your own pace
-your ability to keep your project "top of mind"
-your ability to find creative time here and there
-and more

Each meeting will start with a short presentation. That will be followed by a discussion, exchange of ideas and encouragement.
